Variants in brain-related genes with a low NSS score confer significantly higher susceptibility than variants in other brain-related genes. The enrichment is strongest for schizophrenia, but we cannot rule out enrichment for other phenotypes. The false discovery rate conditional on the evolutionary proxy points to 27 candidate schizophrenia susceptibility loci, 12 of which are associated with schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders or linked to brain development. Conclusions: Our results suggest that there is a polygenic overlap between schizophrenia and NSS score, a marker of human evolution, which is in line with the hypothesis that the persistence of schizophrenia is related to the evolutionary process of becoming human.]]> Wed 12 Aug 2020 09:42:59 AEST ]]> Leveraging genomic annotations and pleiotropic enrichment for improved replication rates in schizophrenia GWAS /manager/Repository/uon:26719 -8). There were 693 and 219 independent loci with model-based replication rates ≥80% and ≥90%, respectively. Compared to analyses not incorporating relative enrichment scores, CM3 increased out-of-sample yield for SNPs that replicate at a given rate. This demonstrates that replication probabilities can be more accurately estimated using prior enrichment information with CM3.]]> Wed 11 Apr 2018 17:05:48 AEST ]]> Identification of gene loci that overlap between schizophrenia and educational attainment /manager/Repository/uon:34615 Thu 04 Apr 2019 09:04:20 AEDT ]]>
