Research into the genetics of schizophrenia using bioinformatics methods

Schizophrenia is a very common mental disorder, the biological understanding of the combination of symptoms of which is quite problematic. In this study, through the search for the most statistically significant genes associated with schizophrenia, an attempt was made to identify combinations of biological processes that could explain and combine the various manifestations of the disease. Using biological databases and already existing clinical research, a fairly complete list of the processes and metabolic pathways linking symptoms of different types was obtained. The results of the study can help in the development of more effective drugs of complex action, as they give an understanding of the biological relationship between the manifestations of the disease.
