- December brings two great pre-prints from colleagues studying de novo (and other rare) variation: - t.co/45TcrREyYu on autism spectrum disorder led by @Sirt3, @Jack_Kosmicki, and Jiebiao Wang - t.co/76UbAwmr8W on schizophrenia led by @danhowrigan
- Congrats @joonomics, @DonnaWerling, Stephan + co on their contribution to the #PsychENCODE package! A great extension of the CWAS framework from the SSC-WGS paper earlier this year. Promoter variation does influence autism risk, but *very small* effects! t.co/kqvUvTAouc
- What an awesome collaboration with @mgymrek! Now on @biorxivpreprint: t.co/oC9LWJ8coW Here is an appetizer - summarizing the classes of expression STRs and potential mechanisms for the way they impact gene expression: CC @UCSDBMS @UCSDMedSchool t.co/YbmlD5PYG6
- Pleased to announce that our results from exome sequencing of 1695 schizophrenia affected probands from Taiwan is now online at t.co/lMHtmtDGJT. You can download the de novo variant calls here: t.co/KE6AzYu4Df the README has all the relevant details
