Genomics and Epigenomics of Psychiatric Disorders

medizinischegenetik 1 - 2020
Wissenschaftliche Koordination: Markus Nöthen
Kurze Zusammenfassung
Despite its high frequency and many decades of researc, the biological basis of psychiatric disease remains poorly understood. This has implications in terms of treatment, with many currently available therapies showing limited efficacy or, in the case of drug therapy, adverse side effects. For many years, researchers have hoped that breakthoughts in the biological understanding of psychiatric disease could be achieved through the use of genetic approaches. Even early descriptions of psychiatric disorder cases reported a familial occurance.
