Dna-helix
The DNA helix

Here is an introductory course in genetics suitable for psychologists. With the development of the Human Genome Project and the development of new methods and technologies it is likely that there will be significant advances in the next twenty years in our understanding of the link between our genes, our physiology and our behavior, mood and cognitionsetc. It is important that psychologist develop the knowledge base to make the best use of these developments.
