Dr. Alexander Bachmanov is a scientist and geneticist currently working at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His research focuses on the genetics of taste, ingestive behavior and alcohol intake. His studies are centred on genetic variation among mouse strains, using contrasting phenotypes for genetic analyses.Bachmanov AA, Reed DR, Tordoff MG, Price RA, Beauchamp GK (1996)Intake of ethanol, sodium chloride, sucrose, citric acid and quinine hydrochloride solutions by mice: a genetic analysis.
