Identifying eQTLs and endophenotyping known CNVs in a large Australian schizophrenia sample (2010–2013)

This study hopes to identify genetic code variations associated with an increased risk of schizophrenia. We will study variation in gene expression levels in patients and healthy controls to identify underlying changes in the genetic code responsible. In a subset of patients with schizophrenia and known rare copy number variations (CNVs) in the genetic code we will conduct brain scans and psychological tests to characterize the effect of CNVs on brain structure and function in schizophrenia.
