ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Researchers at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health and Medical School are working on a genome sequencing study to help better understand bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

The Ann Arbor university announced Monday that its researchers are leading the collaboration with researchers at the University of Southern California as well as the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT to sequence the genomes of 10,000 people.

They received three separate four-year awards totaling $16 million from the National Institute of Mental Health to help fund the work.

Michael Boehnke is director of the Center for Statistical Genetics in the Department of Biostatistics at the School of Public Health. He says in a statement that the work builds on previous research that involved a smaller genome sequencing project.
