The EArly Genetics and Lifecourse Epidemiology (EAGLE) Consortium is a consortium of pregnancy and birth cohorts that aims to collaborate to investigate the genetic basis of phenotypes in antenatal and early life and childhood.
EAGLE covers a broad range of pathways and phenotypes, and will integrate closely with the DOHaD (developmental origins of health and disease) community.
Genomics of human aggression
The EAGLE “Genetic association study of childhood aggression across raters, instruments, and age” has now been accepted in Translational Psychiatry!
The study of “Continuity of Genetic Risk for Aggressive Behavior Across the Life-Course” has now been published in Behavior Genetics (doi: 10.1007/s10519-021-10076-6) and describes a successful application in Dutch and Australian cohorts of the PGS for aggression across the life span.
