Genome-wide association analysis of insomnia complaints identifies risk genes and genetic overlap with psychiatric and metabolic traits

08:01 EDT 24 Aug 2017 | Nature Publishing

Danielle Posthuma and colleagues report a genome-wide association analysis for insomnia complaints in 113,006 individuals from the UK Biobank that identifies associations with variants near seven genes. They find evidence for sex-specific genetic architectures underlying genetic risk for insomnia and genetic correlations between insomnia complaints and psychiatric and metabolic traits.
