New GWAS SCZ loci (nature genetics 2018)

March 5, 2018

Common #schizophrenia alleles are enriched in mutation-intolerant genes & in regions under strong background selection
https://www.nature.com/articles/s41588-018-0059-2 50 novel SCZ loci & 145 loci in total, from #GWAS – associated w/ 33 candidate causal genes

QT:{{”
We report a new genome-wide association study of schizophrenia (11,260 cases and 24,542 controls), and through meta-analysis with existing data we identify 50 novel associated loci and 145 loci in total. Through integrating genomic fine-mapping with brain expression and chromosome conformation data, we identify candidate causal genes within 33 loci.

George Church ascribes his visionary ideas to narcolepsy

.@GeoChurch ascribes his…ideas to narcolepsy
https://www.StatNews.com/2017/06/08/george-church-narcolepsy Advocates more neurodiversity, ie those w. ASD, OCD, ADD + narcolepsy

QT:{{”
“His condition has persuaded Church of the benefits of, even the need for, neurodiversity, meaning brains that work differently from most others. The world needs people with high-functioning autism and obsessive-compulsive disorder and attention deficit disorder and, yes, narcolepsy, he has come to believe.”
