At this year's meeting of the Behavior Genetics Association, the Fulker Award for best paper published in the journal Behavior Genetics during 2010 was presented to IBG Faculty Fellow, Matt Keller (Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience), Sarah Medland of the Queensland Institute for Medical Research, and Laramie Duncan, a graduate student in clinical psychology and the IBG graduate program. Their paper, "Are extended twin family designs worth the trouble? A comparison of the bias, precision, and accuracy of parameters estimated in four twin family models" provided a rigorous guide to these issues in the classical twin design and three extended twin family designs used in human behavior genetics.

Congratulations to Matt, Sarah, and Laramie for this outstanding contribution to behavior genetics research.
