This is an interesting analytic paper which tests the hypothesis that common genomic variants are responsible for a substantial proportion of the variance in genomewide association studies of schizophrenia.

As large-scale efforts to fully sequence genomes of individuals with schizophrenia are underway at many centers, it will be interesting to revisit this hypothesis.
