Abstract

Schizophrenia is a complex genetic disorder caused by multiple genetic and environmental factors. Several lines of linkage and association studies have repeatedly suggested that the chromosome 5q22-33 region is implicated in the aetiology of schizophrenia. However, most of the previous studies on the linkage of 5q22-33 with schizophrenia were from European populations, and it was not well characterised in other populations.
