Genetic mapping of genes which predispose to psychiatric illness is discussed in relation to recent developments in molecular genetic technology. Among the psychiatric disorders, the mechanism by which genetic factors contribute to illness is poorly understood, and the classification of phenotype (ill-status) is extremely complicated. These uncertainties, together with other complicating factors, tend to undermine the effectiveness of genetic linkage analysis. Two very powerful new molecular… CONTINUE READING
