The meeting, Molecular Cytogenetics: Bridging the Resolution Gap, examined new strategies for handling and analyzing DNA intermediate in size between the DNAs studied by cytogenetics and by cloning techniques. It seems that although one can optimize techniques and strategies, a considerable element of luck is involved in finding a sought-after gene in kilobases of DNA.
Molecular Genetics and Biology of Alcoholism meeting reviewed the data on the inheritance of alcoholism and attempted to evaluate future strategies. Most common disorders do not have a simple pattern of inheritance and probably result from interactions between the environment and one or more of a number of genes. Alcoholism is a classic example of such a complex disease.
