PROJECT SUMMARY Our understanding of the genetics of schizophrenia is advancing at a rapid pace and an increasing number of risk-associated polymorphisms and variants have been discovered. Because the majority of these variants reside in intergenic, intronic and other non-coding sequences, a precise variant or target gene for schizophrenia has not been identified. Therefore, a major challenge lies in designing testable hypotheses to elucidate the po...
