The notion that the blueprint of depression is etched deep within the genes has been backed by various scientific evidences. Despite the above fact, it was only recently that the scientists were able to identify the genome associated with depression amidst individuals, particularly those with the European lineage.
Since depression like any other disease is caused by multiple factors, the role of genetics remained neglected for long despite the fact that mental disorders often run in families. Despite earlier conventional genome-wide studies, scientists failed to determine the accurate information and pertaining to the genome sites responsible for triggering depression.
