Psychiatric Genetics Consortium

The PGC-PTSD operates relatively autonomously under the umbrella organization of the PGC, which has workgroups tackling GWAS for all the major neuropsychiatric conditions.

Lisa Computer Cluster

The PGC-PTSD uses computational resources of the Lisa System for all genomic analyses.

Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research
The DNA extraction, quality control, and genotyping for GWAS is performed at the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute.

ENIGMA – Enhancing Imaging Genetics through Meta-Analysis

The Imaging workgroup of the PGC-PTSD also known as ENIGMA-PTSD utilizes methods, analyses pipelines, and informatics tools developed by ENIGMA.
