Statistics Seminars: Explorations of the immune hypothesis of schizophrenia using GWAS data
6 November 2017 14:00 in CM221
I discuss the exploration of this hypothesis describing work that investigates the following three topics.
1. The nature of the association to the histo compatibility locus (HLA) on chromosome 6.
2. The genetic overlap between schizophrenia and other immune disorders.
3. The association with schizophrenia with genetic variation in immune genes.
I will provide background information about genetic data and studies to contextualise the statistical methods used this work.
