Genome-Wide Association Studies have been very successful in identifying variants that are associated with specific traits. However, elucidating the exact nature of those associations remains a challenge. As part of my fellowship, I will work on a systematic review of newly-developed genomic methods, as well as datasets used to address this challenge in psychiatric traits.
