bipolar disorder

Researchers for the InPSYght project are sequencing 10,000 genomes and generating linked-read data for 500 to better understand schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. 

The international team of researchers also examined the genetic ties between personality traits and psychiatric disorders.

The Geisinger Health System team found 241 genes, including 17 new ones, which could be related to autism, schizophrenia, and other disorders.

Using Myriad RBM's platform, Mayo researchers identify proteins that could be markers of bipolar I depression.

If it is able to implement its strategic goals, Myriad projected, it could have $1.5 billion in annual revenues by fiscal year 2020.
