The SCN3A gene, which encodes a voltage-gate sodium channel in the brain, also controls oral motor development, including swallowing, tongue movement, and speech.

Researchers used WGS to diagnose the patients when previous testing couldn't find an underlying genetic cause for their symptoms.

The UPenn team will collect genetic information from outside patient cohorts, reorganize it in a streamlined process, and provide a database for downstream studies.

Researchers used CRISPR to engineer mice that have multiple genetic variants associated with late-onset AD to facilitate research into biomarkers and treatments.

Researchers used brain expression data from mice with well-documented sleep traits to identify gene networks that overlap with those in human depression.

In an epigenome-wide association study of depression, the researchers tied DNA methylation to disease symptoms and suggested a role for axon guidance disruption.

Though the South Carolina Supreme Court said Quest was a healthcare provider, Williams can try to keep her case alive by arguing she's alleging ordinary negligence.

The funding will help support the whole-genome and RNA sequencing of Alzheimer's disease patients to advance biomarker development.

Using exome sequences for 6,753 parent-child trios, researchers saw genes with increased de novo variant burdens in neurodevelopmental disorders with epilepsy.
