presents, “Exploring the Genetics of Neurodevelopmental Psychiatric Disorders in a Health Care System”

Hosted by: Dr. Tychele Turner

Seminar abstract: Autism, schizophrenia, and other clinically distinct neurodevelopmental psychiatric disorders (NPD) have shared genetic etiologies, including copy number variants (CNVs) and single gene disorders. To date, rare variants that cause NPD have primarily been investigated in clinically-ascertained cohorts, therefore population-based estimates of their prevalence and penetrance are lacking. In this presentation, the prevalence, penetrance, and personal utility of NPD CNVs and single gene variants will be explored in a large health care system population.
