"A clearer understanding of genetic relationships of childhood maltreatment, incl particular abuse subtypes, with a range of phenotypes, may ultimately be useful in in developing targeted treatment and prevention strategies." Unethical and irresponsible.
A new paper from the PTSD group: genomic influences on self-reported childhood maltreatment (Now with working link!)
Interesting study showing genetic influences on retrospective self-reports of childhood maltreatment, and genetic correlations between self-reported child maltreatment and depression, neuroticism, smoking, insomnia, earlier age at first birth & others
Are any companies going to offer embryo selection against childhood maltreatment polygenic risk scores?
Self-reported childhood maltreatment appears heritable. Our team looked at the specific genetic influences on this phenotype. v Transl. Psychiatry
