Genetic studies of alcohol consumption have examined both common and rare genetic variants. We showed that genes identified by these two approaches belong to a single shared molecular network. The genes in this network included genes involved in alcohol metabolism, genes previously implicated in alcohol use disorder and other substance use disorders, and genes implicated in other neuropsychiatric and behavioral traits.
