Common polygenic variation contributes to risk of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder
The extent to which common genetic variation underlies the risk of schizophrenia is shown, using two analytic approaches, and the major histocompatibility complex is implicate, which is shown to involve thousands of common alleles of very small effect.
Biological Insights From 108 Schizophrenia-Associated Genetic Loci
Associations at DRD2 and several genes involved in glutamatergic neurotransmission highlight molecules of known and potential therapeutic relevance to schizophrenia, and are consistent with leading pathophysiological hypotheses.
Integration of summary data from GWAS and eQTL studies predicts complex trait gene targets
A method is proposed that integrates summary-level data from GWAS with data from expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) studies to identify genes whose expression levels are associated with a complex trait because of pleiotropy, and prioritize 126 genes that provide important leads to design future functional studies.
A versatile gene-based test for genome-wide association studies.

Heritability in the genomics era — concepts and misconceptions
This work has shown that despite continuous misunderstandings and controversies over its use and application, heritability remains key to the response to selection in evolutionary biology and agriculture, and to the prediction of disease risk in medicine.
Genome-wide Association Analysis Identifies 14 New Risk Loci for Schizophrenia
It is estimated that 8,300 independent, mostly common SNPs contribute to risk for schizophrenia and that these collectively account for at least 32% of the variance in liability.
Genome-wide association analyses identify 44 risk variants and refine the genetic architecture of major depression
A genome-wide association meta-analysis of individuals with clinically assessed or self-reported depression identifies 44 independent and significant loci and finds important relationships of genetic risk for major depression with educational attainment, body mass, and schizophrenia.
Estimating missing heritability for disease from genome-wide association studies.
Common schizophrenia alleles are enriched in mutation-intolerant genes and in regions under strong background selection
A new genome-wide association study of schizophrenia is reported, and through meta-analysis with existing data and integrating genomic fine-mapping with brain expression and chromosome conformation data, 50 novel associated loci and 145 loci are identified.
