Research professor of behavioural genetics and deputy director of the Social, Genetic and Development Psychiatry Center at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London. Recent books include Behavioual Genetics and Behavioural Genetics in the Postgenomic Era. Genetics is entering a golden postgenomic era, in which the structure and function of the entire genome will eventually be known. In contrast, there is no ‘environome’ project. Indeed, there are no laws of environmental transmission and there is nothing like a simple triplet DNA code. Such an approach challenges established understandings of animal models as tools for making universal claims. Nelson details how, in a postgenomic era, animal behavior geneticists engage in much more modest work—establishing particular behavioral analogs between species rather than generalizing about entire classes of organisms.

The wedding of techniques from molecular biology with traditional twin and family studies has ushered in a 'postgenomic era' in behavioral genetics. During its first 30 years, from roughly tothe modern discipline of behavioral genetics was based almost entirely on twin and family studies.

The greatest impact of the postgenomic era on human behavioral genetics research will come after specific genes have been identified that contribute to the ubiquitous heritability of behavioral traits.

The future of genetic research lies in moving from finding genes (genomics) to finding out how genes work (functional genomics).Cited by: 1.

For example, a widely studied functional genetic marker in COMT (rs) is probably not associated with schizophrenia, but nearby genetic markers assessed in a minority of studies may be.

However, as discussed in the next section, a number of methodologically adequate association studies of schizophrenia appear to support the role of several candidate genes in the etiology of by: Books; Books.
