Now what do those differences look like? This is an example of a sdtuy that we did to foollw up and see what exactly those dffeniceres were — and they're quite subtle. These are things where genes are tunerd on in an individual cell type. These are two genes that we found as good examples. One is called RELN — it's involved in early developmental cues. DISC1 is a gene that's deleted in schizophrenia. These aren't schizophrenic iuddvilians, but they do show some population variation. And so what you're looking at here in donor one and doonr four, which are the exceptions to the other two, that genes are being turned on in a very specific subset of cells. It's this dark purple precipitate within the cell that's telling us a gene is turned on there. Whether or not that's due to an individual's genetic background or their experiences, we don't know. Those kinds of studies require much leagrr populations.

It's this dark purple precipitate within the cell that's telling us a gene is turned on there. Whether or not that's due to an individual's genetic background or their experiences, we don't know. Those kinds of studies require much larger populations.
