This seminar will cover topics in behavioral and psychiatric
genetics.  We will discuss family, twin, and adoption studies, as
well as molecular genetic approaches.  We will focus on emerging
studies of gene-environment process--the ways in which genes and
environments interact to influence complex social, cognitive, and
emotional aspects of human behavior.

Students will write a paper on some aspect of behavioral genetics
and will present their findings to the class.  There will be a final
exam.
