The importance of distinguishing between the odds ratio and the incidence rate ratio in GWAS

Most GWAS are built on unrelated case-control studies, e.g. studies within the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium. In this paper we investigate the difference between the odds ratio, estimated using an unrelated case-control study, and the incidence rate ratio from longitudinal designs. From simulations we see that the odds ratio is not equal to the…

microRNA as regulators of schizophrenia risk genes

Transcription factors and miRNAs regulate gene expression on pre- and post-transcriptional levels, respectively. They are known to have large interaction networks and play important roles in e.g. cell differentiation and tissue development. This study explores how several miRNAs and their abilities for regulating the expression of schizophrenia…

Identification of the BRD1 interaction network and its impact on mental disorder risk

Transcription factors and miRNAs regulate gene expression on pre- and post-transcriptional levels, respectively. They are known to have large interaction networks and play important roles in e.g. cell differentiation and tissue development. This study explores the chromatin co-modifier, BRD1.

Genetic risk for autism spectrum disorders and neuropsychiatric variation in the general population

Almost all genetic risk factors for autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) can be found in people who are typically studied as ‘controls.’ This study examined the relationship between genetic risk factors for ASDs and behavioural differences in the general population. Using data from several large studies, we found that both common polygenic and de novo…
