Latest Jonathan Sebat Stories
A group of international researchers led by a team of investigators from the School of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego, recently revealed a new study that provides signals as to the causes of autism and other related disorders.
Scientists are eyeing a rare genetic glitch for clues to improved treatments for some people with schizophrenia â€“ even though they found the mutation in only one third of 1 percent of patients.
In a major advance for schizophrenia research, scientists identified a gene mutation linked to the severe brain disorder and a signaling pathway that could be treatable with existing methods.
In a major advance for schizophrenia research, an international team of scientists, led by Jonathan Sebat, PhD, assistant professor of psychiatry and cellular and molecular medicine at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, has identified a gene mutation strongly linked to the brain disorder â€“ and a signaling pathway that may be treatable with existing compounds.
Gene copy number variations of the same region, 16p11.2, are already linked to autism.
A research team led by Associate Professor Jonathan Sebat, Ph.D., of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) has developed a sensitive and accurate way of identifying gene copy number variations (CNVs).
