Behavioral Genetics

Behavioral genetics is a scientific discipline that seeks to document the relative influences of heredity and environment on behavioral differences observed among individuals. It includes quantitative genetics (twin, adoption, and family studies) and molecular genetics (DNA studies) (Ryckman, 2013, p. 470).
