 The ‘Boozing’ Gene

Recent insight from Imperial College has pointed to the presence of a particular gene connected to increasing the risk of boozing or alcohol consumption.

The gene named as "autism susceptibility candidate 2" has also been linked to autism and scientists are curious to understand the functions of this particular gene.
