Whole Exome Sequencing in Familial Parkinson Disease
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
We have an ongoing study that has recruited families having at least a sibling pair with Parkinson disease (PD). Families have been screened for mutations in known PD causative genes (LRRK2, parkin, etc). Following review of families without a causative mutation, we selected families for whole exome sequencing that had the strongest history of PD and with the most definitive diagnosis. All families have at least 3 affected family members who were evaluated as part of this study. Only affected family members were included for whole exome sequencing.
