at The Zucker Hillside Hospital (ZHH) campus of The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, this case-control whole genome study of roughly 500,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) revealed that a novel locus (rs4129148) near the CSF2RA gene was significantly associated with schizophrenia.
A whole genome scan revealed a strong effect of a novel region near the CSF2RA gene, and sequencing revealed specific genetic variants in the CSF2RA and IL3RA genes associated with schizophrenia.
