Rare genetic variants may play a prominent role in schizophrenia. We report on the to date largest whole exome sequencing study of schizophrenia case-control samples from related populations and combine with other available sequence data, analysing in total 34,084 individuals (14,302 cases). Three genes showed significant association at FDR < 0.10 ( SETD1A , TAF13 and MKI67 ) and gene-set analyses highlighted the involvement of the synaptome and excitatory neurons, and demonstrated shared architecture with high-functioning autism.
