Why is it important?
This negative finding provides further positive evidence for the trait's clinical diagnostic and endophenotype utility — which will be assessed through large-scale BRR phenotyping of genotyped cohorts (i.e., 10,000s with psychiatric disorders and in controls) — and genetic analyses including GWAS, polygenic risk score association with PGC (Psychiatric Genomics Consortium) disorders, gene-/pathway-based analyses and Mendelian randomization methods.
