Schizophrenia Studies Find Genetic Risk Spread Across Shared Pathways | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A pair of papers published online today in Nature described the outcome of two large exome sequencing studies aimed at finding new and/or rare genetic contributors to schizophrenia.

In each case, the groups involved found that schizophrenia risk did not reside in any one gene, but across a few, recurrent — often brain-related — pathways.
