Research Discovers Three New Genetic Risk Markers of Depression

Researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University, the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) and Wellcome Sanger Institute have found that the contribution of genetic variations to depression may differ between people who have experienced serious adversities in their life and those who haven’t. By carrying out a genome-wide association study that took into account whether or not a person has faced a major adversity in their life, the scientists were able to identify contributing molecular mechanisms that not previously been associated with depression.
