The genome-wide association (GWA) era has confirmed the heritability of many psychiatric disorders, most notably schizophrenia. Sven Stringer investigates the complex relationship between genetic code and the development of psychiatric disorders. Particular emphasis is placed on a specific type of genetic variant, known as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), which are single DNA letters that are different in a part of the population.
