Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a serious mental disorder that occurs in response to a traumatic event. In this project, we will examine DNA methylation, an epigenetic form of gene regulation, for association with PTSD. We will utilize data from state of the art methylation beadchips that measure more than 850,000 locations along the genome. First, we will perform an epigenome-wide association study (EWAS) of PTSD in blood. This will be followed by a candidate gene analysis of PTSD and g...
