Congenital anosmias can be complete (the lack of a sense of smell) or specific (the inability to detect specific smells). To date, only a single recessive gene underlying complete anosmia has been identified. Here we sequenced the exomes of 10 individuals from a single family, including three with complete anosmia, across three generations to identify the genetic basis of congenital anosmia in this family. This data is part of a pre-publication release.
