buy canada goose jacket cheap In a key advance for the study of depression, a comprehensive scan of human DNA has turned up the apparent hiding places of more than a dozen genes linked to the disorder. buy canada goose jacket cheap

Canada Goose Online Experts said the result is important not only for its specific findings, but also for its demonstration that the study’s approach can help uncover clues to the biology of depression, which is largely a mystery. Canada Goose Online

buy canada goose jacket Such DNA scans are popular for finding genes that affect risk of diseases, but depression has proven largely resistant to this Canada Goose Parka approach. In a rare cheap Canada Goose and modest success reported last year, researchers turned up two places canada goose deals in the human DNA that appear to harbor genes affecting risk in a Han Chinese population. buy canada goose jacket

“What they’re showing is, we’re on the way” to finding many more genetic links, said Dr. Douglas Levinson of Stanford University, who didn’t participate in the work. “They’ve shown that depression is tractable.”

canada goose factory sale He called the new results the most convincing evidence so far that such gene scans can pay off for depression. canada goose factory sale

Canada Goose online The work by Winslow and others identified 15 areas of the human DNA the “genome” that show signs of harboring genetic variations that affect risk of becoming depressed. That indicates where scientists can focus on identifying and studying the affected genes, which in turn could reveal what processes go awry to raise the risk of the disease. Canada Goose online

Dr. Patrick Sullivan, an expert in depression genetics at the University of North Carolina in North Carolina, said the findings “look pretty solid.” They provide an important step toward finding all the genes that affect depression, a Canada Goose sale list he said probably numbers “in the high hundreds.”

“It’s a markedly canada goose outlet canada goose clearance sale better step than I believe anybody has taken before,” he said.

canada goose clearance Typically, genes that affect the risk of common diseases like depression have only a small individual effect. So to find signs of their location, scientists have to combine results from the genomes of many people. canada goose clearance

canada goose store The new work drew in part on data from more than 121,000 customers of 23andMe who indicated they’d been diagnosed with depression or treated for it, plus more than 338,000 other customers. They had consented to the use of their Canada Goose Outlet data for canada goose black friday sale research. canada goose store

Canada Goose sale Those results were combined with data from about 9,000 people diagnosed with the disease and 9,500 others, taken from a previous study to find risk genes. Canada Goose sale

Canada Goose Jackets The 15 locations that appear to canada goose harbor disease risk genes were uncovered by a statistical analysis that compares people with depression to those without, looking for slight but suggestive differences at specific spots in canadian goose jacket their genomes. Such differences in the DNA code don’t necessarily cause a heightened depression risk themselves, but canada goose store they indicate that the effect is coming from somewhere nearby Canada Goose Jackets.
