Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

Several strong candidate genes and regions have been implicated in bipolar disorder (BP) and schizophrenia (SCZ) through linkage and association studies. These disorders have also recently been studied in genome-wide association studies (GWAS), identifying further putative candidate loci, albeit with lower levels of significance and reproducibility than in GWAS of other complex disorders.
