Does the impact of genes and environment change over time? How much parent-child similarity is due to shared genes versus shared environmental factors? This basic model can be extended in a variety of ways to account for sex limitation, genotype × environment interaction, sibling interaction, and to deal with multiple variables measured simultaneously (multivariate genetic analysis) or longitudinally (developmental genetic analysis). Other relatives can also be included, such as siblings, parents, spouses, and children of twins, which may allow better separation of genetic and cultural transmission and estimation of assortative mating and twin and sibling environment.

Inherent multiplicity is also at the heart of a potential controversy when an interim analysis is used, the null hypothesis is not rejected, the study continues to the final analysis, and the final P value is greater than the adjusted alpha level yet less than the overall alpha level (see Sequential Testing). 96 would be used as the critical value for a single analysis. 04} if the O’Brien–Fleming sequential boundaries are used [9]. 01. 01 for each of the five analyses, and there would be no early stopping.

The ACE model can then be fitted either directly to the raw data or to summary statistics (covariance matrices) and decisions made about the model on the basis of the goodness-of-fit. There are several statistical modeling packages available capable of fitting the model, for example, EQS, SAS, Lisrel, and Mx (see Structural Equation Modeling: Software). The last program was designed specifically with genetic epidemiologic models in mind, and provides great flexibility in specifying both basic and advanced models [10].
