Abstract

Schizophrenia is a common mental disorder, affecting 0.5-1% of the population. The mode of inheritance is complex and non-Mendelian with a high heritability of ca. 65-80%. Given this complexity, until most recently it was difficult to identify disease genes. But fortunately this has changed. Due to new technologies the last few years have brought highest interest in human genetics of complex diseases. The knowledge resulting from the availability of the complete sequence of the human genome, the systematic identification of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) throughout the genome, and the development of parallel genotyping technology (microarrays) established the conditions that brought about the current successful time in our ability to probe the genome for identifying disease genes. All these studies showed up new avenues for the biology of common complex diseases and yielded a multitude of genes showing strong association with complex diseases.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 January 2012.
All research outputs
#14,239,962
of 17,837,438 outputs
Outputs from Current topics in behavioral neurosciences
#292
of 382 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#167,630
of 224,570 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current topics in behavioral neurosciences
#9
of 13 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,837,438 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 382 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.4. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 224,570 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 12th percentile – i.e., 12% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 13 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
