The paper explores the genetic environment and gene X environment interaction and examines the variables involved in someone becoming alcohol dependent.

From the Paper:

"Genetic environmental and gene X environment interaction effects on various indices of normal and problem drinking have been observed by any number of researchers, most of whom have explored these effects in genetically informative twin and adoption designs. (Light, Irvine and Kjerulf) Many such studies have been carried out and a number of comprehensive reviews of these studies have led researchers to the conclusion that both nature and nurture singly and in interaction are associated with both normal and problem drinking behaviors."
