Funding Acknowledgements

We thank all of the individuals who participated and contributed to these studies. The Alcohol-GWAS (AlcGen) consortium was brought together as a component project of the European Union-funded European Network on Genomic and Genetic Epidemiology (ENGAGE) Program (HEALTH-F4-2007-201413). Functional genetic research was supported by the European Union-funded FP6 Integrated Project IMAGEN (Reinforcement-related behavior in normal brain function and psychopathology) (LSHM-CT-2007-037286) and FP7 project ADAMS (Genomic variations underlying common neuropsychiatric diseases and disease related cognitive traits in different human populations) (242257), as well as the United Kingdom National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre Mental Health, the Medical Research Council Programme Grant "Developmental pathways into adolescent substance abuse" (93558), the German Nationales Genomforschungsnetz (01GS08152), and the State of California for Medical Research through the University of California, San Francisco. L.J.C. is supported by a Research Council United Kingdom (RCUK) fellowship. P. C. was supported in part by a grant from the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre funded by NIHR. G. B. was supported by grants from the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research (FAS) and Swedish Science Research Council. E. S. was supported by grants from Instituto de Salud Carlos III (ISCIII) (FIS PI021570) and Junta de Castilla y Leon (JCyL) (SA044A08 and GR93) as well as institutional support from RTICC (RD06/0020/000), ISCIII, Spain. P. E. is an NIHR senior investigator. Acknowledgements for participating cohorts are in SI Text.
