Figure 1: Genotype-Environment Interaction

The graph depicts genotype-environment interaction. The horizontal axis represents genetic loading. The vertical axis goes from zero to 1% and represents environmental interaction. The following are visual approximations: The probability of alcoholism is quite low when both inherited biological vulnerability and environmental risk factors are small. To this end, the graph depicts low but increasing escalation running from 0 to 0.1%. As moderate genetic loading occurs with higher environmental sensitivity, the graph reflects a steeper escalation running from 0.1% to 0.440% and an increasing probability of alcoholism. When high genetic loading is combined with low environmental sensitivity, the probability of alcoholism is considered very high. Here escalation continues and runs from 0.440% to 9.50%.
