In closing, it is worth noting that procedures for DNA collection and genetic analysis continue to become more automated and efficient. It is rapidly becoming possible for researchers with even relatively modest budgets to include a behavior genetic component within their study. The ability to apply these methods to a broad new set of psychological questions will facilitate an extraordinary kind of collaborative synergy between behavior genetic researchers and investigators in other areas of psychology and psychiatry that can only serve to strengthen the studies in both domains.
