Remote collaborative research drives new insights on a rare genetic disorder linked to schizophrenia
The key to a better understanding of schizophrenia may exist in a genetic disorder so rare that researchers haven't been able to conduct an adequate study — until now. The genetic disorder 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS), caused by a small segment of missing DNA on chromosome 22, is the strongest known genetic risk factor for developing
