By: A. Ghosh*, F. Zou* & F. Wright*

MeSH headings : Genome, Human; Haplotypes; Humans; Likelihood Functions; Models, Genetic; Odds Ratio; Software
TL;DR: This work introduces a method, based on the estimate of genetic effect and its standard error as reported by standard statistical software, to correct for this bias in case-control association studies and develops a principled method to construct confidence intervals for the genetic effect that acknowledges the conditioning on statistical significance.

Genomewide association for schizophrenia in the CATIE study: results of stage 1

Molecular Psychiatry, 13(6), 570–584.

By: P. Sullivan*, D. Lin*, J. Tzeng n, E. van den Oord*, D. Perkins*, T. Stroup*, M. Wagner*, S. Lee* ...

author keywords: schizophrenia; genomewide association; CATIE
MeSH headings : Antipsychotic Agents / therapeutic use; Case-Control Studies; Computational Biology; DNA / genetics; DNA / isolation & purification; Genetic Markers; Genetic Variation; Genome, Human; Genotype; Humans; National Institute of Mental Health (U.S.); Polymorphism, Single Nucleotide; Schizophrenia / drug therapy; Schizophrenia / genetics; United States
TL;DR: These data do not provide evidence for the involvement of any genomic region with schizophrenia detectable with moderate sample size, however, a planned genomewide association study for response phenotypes and inclusion of individual phenotype and genotype data from this study in meta-analyses hold promise for eventual identification of susceptibility and protective variants.
