There is an increasing recognition of the value in integrating behavioral genomics data across species. The fragmentation of public resources, interoperability, and available representations present challenges due to the array of identifiers used to represent each genome feature. Once data are organized into a coherent collection, they can be integrated using a variety of methods to analyze convergent evidence for the roles of genes in behaviors. is a web-based software system that employs many of these techniques and has been used in the study of complex behavior and addiction. These techniques will be increasingly necessary to understand global patterns emerging from experiments in behavioral genomics.

Despite the knowledge and the development of sophisticated procedures in the treatment of wounds, many clinicians are faced with the wounds that heal very slowly or they do not heal at all. In spite of repeated reconsideration of the treatment strategies and focusing on the biological factors, we still pay little attention to the psychosocial factors that are listed as one of the causes of atypical wounds. One factor is self-mutilation caused by psychological disorder called hospital addiction syndrome or Munchausen syndrome, which belongs to a group of the states called imaginary disorder where someone with great need for attention turns to disease or injury. In people with “hospital addiction syndrome”, we are confronted with evidence for the symptoms to be imaginary or consequential to self-inflicted injuries; they usually deny these clams and often leave the hospital despite advice but in search for other physicians and hospitals.

Swollen Members VLOG 1: Madchild’s Ascent Into Addiction – As the Swollen Members wrapped up the recording of the fourth full-length studio LP, Black Magic, in late 2006 the group celebrated a Billboard Top 20 Independent release, a Juno Award (their 4th) and a very successful tour run with Ghostface and Black Eyed Peas. Yet, before they could continue that wave of success, with another follow-up LP, the group was hit with the news that their distributor (TVT) was ceasing operations and that their management was about to drop them due to Madchild’s “nefarious associations” with the Hells Angels. It was about this time that the most serious turn of events unfolded for the group as well, as member Madchild was in full-crisis mode to a serious and life threatening addiction to prescription painkillers (Percocet, Oxycontin) While Madchild has now been clean for two months, we will be releasing a three-part VLOG series that chronicles Madchild’s spiral into addiction, rehab, relapse and recovery–as he details all of the aspects of addiction and the toil it took on him, his family, his friends and his group. VLOG edition #1 details Madchild’s ascent into addiction and the copious amount of pills he was at one time taking on a daily basis
