RNA sequencing of archived neonatal dried blood spots

The neonatal PKU card is usually the first interaction between a neonate and the health care system. The samples are drawn at a time where foetal growth and development has ended and just after the child has undergone the trauma of birth. While it represents a convenient and systematic source of DNA for studies of genomic variation, the prospects…

Impairments of motor function among 7-year-old children with a familial risk of schizophrenia or bipolar disorder in Denmark: an observational cohort study

Owing to the genetic overlap between schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, we aimed to assess domain-specific motor aberrations and disorder specificity among 7-year-old children with a familial risk of schizophrenia or bipolar disorder by comparing children in familial risk groups with each other and with children of control parents.

Whole exome sequencing of individuals from an isolated population implicates rare risk variants in bipolar disorder

A discovery sample of individuals with and without Bipolar Disorder from the Faroe Islands, and a replication sample from the UK, have led both to confirmation of existing findings, as well as identification of suggested additional genes implicated in the biology of the disorder.

Risk of Psychiatric Disorders Among Individuals With the 22q11.2 Deletion or Duplication - A Danish Nationwide, Register-Based Study

While it is well-established that deletions at the 22q11.2 locus may lead to clinically well-known syndromic conditions previously known as DiGeorge or velocardiofacial syndrome, accurate estimates of risk of disease have been missing, and very little is known about the clinical consequences in individuals with the corresponding duplication. Our…
