Genetic variation and alcohol intake during pregnancy - project description
The project aims to find reasons for alcohol consumption during pregnancy by using molecular genetic methods
The project aims to find reasons for alcohol consumption during pregnancy by using molecular genetic methods. We believe that underlying genetic predispositions may be contributing, and that they are particularly prominent in this situation. In addition, personality and socio-economic situation may be contributing factors. If we find specific genes and biological mechanisms for alcohol intake during pregnancy, it may be important to understand other forms of alcohol use as well, including addictive states.
Data from the Norwegian Mother, Father and Child Study (MoBa) will be used, based on the genotyped samples in MoBa Genetics at any given time, and the set of variables from the questionnaires that can shed light on the study.
