Funded by the Intramural Research Programs of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Cancer Institute; Academia Sinica; and the Fondation FondaMental. Collection of samples included in this analysis was funded, in part, by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), the National Genome Research Network (NGFN) of the Federal German Ministry of Education and Research, the Alfred Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung, the DFG-Graduate College 793, University of Heidelberg, the Swiss National Science Foundation (#3200B0 105993, #32003B-118308 and #33CSCO-122661) and GlaxoSmithKline (Psychiatry Center of Excellence for Drug Discovery and Genetics Division, Verona). Genotyping of the NIMH bipolar disorder samples was provided through the Genetic Association Information Network (GAIN), Foundation for NIH. Genotyping of the TGEN sample was done at the Translational Genomics Research Institute with the support of the NIMH (with thanks to David W Craig).

This research was also supported, in part, by the Intramural Research Program of the National Library of Medicine, NIH. This study utilized the high-performance computational capabilities of the Biowulf Linux cluster at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD.

Some of the datasets used for the analyses described in this manuscript were obtained from the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGAP phs000017.v1.p1.c1-c3). Samples and associated phenotype data were provided by the contributing studies.

This study makes use of data generated by the Wellcome Trust Case-Control Consortium. A full list of the investigators who contributed to the generation of the data is available from Funding for the project was provided by the Wellcome Trust under award 076113 and 085475. We thank the Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium for making data and results available for further analysis.

Data and biomaterials in the NIMH bipolar disorder sample were collected in four projects that participated in the NIMH Bipolar Disorder Genetics Initiative.
