and of neuroscience, and their team sequenced the "exome"-the region of the human genome that codes for proteins-of 231 schizophrenia patients and their unaffected parents.
Making that idea work required a lot of help from real scientists: Her father, who runs a cellular biophysics
lab at the Rockefeller University; her surgeon at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; and gene specialists at the New York Genome Center.
