Genome-wide association study identifies 74 loci associated with educational attainment
Because educational attainment is measured in large numbers of individuals, it will continue to be useful as a proxy phenotype in efforts to characterize the genetic influences of related phenotypes, including cognition and neuropsychiatric diseases.

Heavier women may benefit from avoiding high and very high GWG, which brings only a slight increase in the risk of growth restriction for the infant, and underweight women may want to avoid low GWG to prevent having a small baby.

The nature of genetic influences on longevity is probably non-additive and environmental influences non-shared, and there is no evidence for an impact of shared (family) environment.
Genetic variants associated with subjective well-being, depressive symptoms and neuroticism identified through genome-wide analyses
Across the phenotypes, loci regulating expression in central nervous system and adrenal or pancreas tissues are strongly enriched for association and the two loci associated with depressive symptoms replicate in an independent depression sample.
