This work summarizes the proceedings of a symposium at the 2004 RSA Meeting in Vancouver, Canada. The organizers were R. W. Williams and D. B. Matthews; the Chair was M. F. Miles. The presentations were (1) WebQTL: A resource for analysis of gene expression variation and the genetic dissection of alcohol related phenotypes, by E. J. Chesler, (2) The marriage of microarray and qtl analyses: what's to gain, by J. K. Belknap, (3) Use of WebQTL to identify QTLs associated with footshock stress and ethanol related behaviors, by D. B. Matthews, (4) A high throughput strategy for the detection of quantitative trait genes, by R. J. Hitzemann, and (5) The use of gene arrays in conjunction with transgenic and selected animals to understand anxiety in alcoholism, by. B. Tabakoff.
