Course Description

Objective: Anxiety disorders are common and often disabling. The goal of this study was to examine the genetic architecture of anxiety disorders and anxiety symptoms, which are also frequently comorbid with other mental disorders, such as major depressive disorder.


Methods: Using one of the world’s largest biobanks including genetic, environmental, and medical information, the Million Veteran Program, the authors performed a genome-wide association study of a continuous trait for anxiety (based on score on the Generalized Anxiety Disorder 2-item scale, N=199,611) as the primary analysis and self-report of physician diagnosis of anxiety disorder (N=224,330) as a secondary analysis.
