Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Learn about genes associated with psychiatric disease!

You will learn about Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) and use the publicly available GWAS Catalog to identify genes associated with a psychiatric disease that you are interested in. Then, you will craft a written paper or presentation describing what is known about some of these genes and what particular roles they play in the disease of interest.
