Schizophrenia genetics comes of age

Neuron. 2014 Aug 20;83(4):760-3. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2014.08.015.


The new GWAS from the Schizophrenia Working Group of the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium (2014) clearly validates a genetic approach to understanding schizophrenia. The challenge now remains to track down the contributing genes and to develop appropriate models to elucidate the biological effects of the contributing variants.
