Updates on genome-wide association findings in eating disorders and future application to precision medicine.

Updates on genome-wide association findings in eating disorders and future application to precision medicine. Curr Neuropharmacol. 2018 Feb 22;: Authors: Breithaupt L, Hubel C, Bulik CM Abstract Heterogeneity, frequent diagnostic fluctuation across presentations, and global concerns with the absence of effective treatments all encourage science that moves the field toward individualized or precision medicine in eating disorders. We review recent advances in psychiatric genetics focusing on genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in eating disorders and enumerate the prospects and challenges of a genomics-driven approach towards personalized intervention.

This paper proposes a history of this “genetic resources” concept and the biopolitical practices it was related to. A semantic history of the ‘resource’ idiom first sheds light on how, in the age of empires and fossil industrialism, the Earth came to be c...
