Anorexia Nervosa

NOTE: The distribution refers to a collection of studies organized by disorder or theme (see FAQ).  It is important to note that not all individuals in the distribution have DNA available.

Given the major public health implications of identifying genes responsible for severe neuropsychiatric disorders, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has funded a Human Genetics Initiative. The goal of this Initiative is to establish a national resource of clinical data and biomaterials that are collected from individuals with autism, schizophrenia, bipolar I disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other mental disorders.

Data and biomaterials (cell lines and DNA samples) are available to qualified investigators who study the genetics of anorexia nervosa disorder, and may be accessed by following a set of instructions.
