The molecular genetics research within the Neuropsychiatric Genetics Research Group can be divided into three strands:

Sequencing – Detection of sequence and structural variation in disease and control samples using low throughput capillary sequencing or ultra-high throughput next generation sequencing.

Genotyping – Assaying genetic variation a various types of genetic markers (e.g. SNPs) using low throughput platforms (e.g. Taqman) or high throughput genome-wide arrays.

Analysis of Functional Variants – Characterization of the impact of specific mutations/polymorphisms on gene function using a range of molecular, cellular and bioinformatics tools.
