HEALTH: Sci­en­tists have pin­pointed nearly 80 genes which they be­lieve could help ex­plain why some peo­ple are sus­cep­ti­ble to de­pres­sion.

A team led by the Univer­sity of Ed­in­burgh an­a­lysed ge­netic codes of peo­ple to iden­tify ar­eas of DNA which may be linked to the con­di­tion. They found 78 genes which could help ex­plain what trig­gers de­pres­sion and as­sist with the de­vel­op­ment of bet­ter treat­ments.
