UW Group Sequences Exomes from 12 People, Confirms Gene for Rare Disease | GenomeWeb

Jay Shendure's lab at the University of Washington has shown that exome sequencing can be used to find a gene behind a rare genetic disorder. Using an array- and next-generation sequencing-based approach, Shendure and his colleagues sequenced the exomes of 12 people: eight individuals from the HapMap Project and four people with Freeman-Sheldon Syndrome, an autosomal dominant disorder marked by craniofacial, hand, and foot abnormalities.
