The focus of the new 2017 issue of G2B REVIEWS is Drug Addiction. Drug addictions are serious medical conditions that have genetic and neurobiological correlates that remain elusive, but which are subject of intense investigation. This issue of G2B REVIEWS presents a dozen articles on the latest breakthroughs in drug addiction from some of the leaders in the field. Access the entire issue for free: click here

  1. No evidence of association of oxytocin polymorphisms with breastfeeding in 2 independent samples

    L. Colodro-Conde, J. F. Sánchez-Romera, P. A. Lind, G. Zhu, N. G. Martin, S. E. Medland and J. R. Ordoñana

    SNPs within or nearby OXT and OXTR are unlikely to have large effects on with breastfeeding behaviour. Future studies tagging haplotypes to infer the candidate gene polymorphism genotypes or with larger sample sizes and hypothesis free approaches (GWAS) are necessary to identify biological variants associated with breastfeeding.

  2. Cognitive deficits and increases in creatine precursors in a brain-specific knockout of the creatine transporter gene Slc6a8

    K. C. Udobi, A. N. Kokenge, E. R. Hautman, G. Ullio, J. Coene, M. T. Williams, C. V. Vorhees, A. Mabondzo and M. R. Skelton
