The size of the study is impressive: "Sample sizes like this are required in order to make progress. You really can't do this
with a handful of families; you need thousands," said Jonathan Sebat, Ph.D., an assistant professor at the University of California,
San Diego, chief of the Beyster Center of Molecular Genomics for Neuropsychiatric Diseases, and leader of the study team,
in an interview with Psychiatric News.
