Observations with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) show that the most vigorous bursts of star birth in the cosmos took place much earlier than previously thought. The results are published in a set of papers to appear in the journal Nature and in the Astrophysical Journal. The research is the most recent example of the discoveries coming from the new international ALMA observatory, which celebrates its inauguration today.

That behavioural traits are influenced by genes is now well established, and every couple of weeks the popular press reports a new gene for this medical disorder or that behavioural trait. In this presentation we will explore the evidence that personality is heritable, and how specific genes might or might not contribute to the behavioural traits that make up personality, both in humans and in other vertebrate species.
