A Study of the Genetic Causes of Complex Pediatric Disorders
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The Center for Applied Genomics (CAG) at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is a high-throughput, highly automated genotyping and sequencing facility equipped with state-of-the-art genotyping and sequencing platforms. Children who are treated at the Children's Hospital Healthcare Network and their parents may be eligible to take part in a major initiative to collect more than 100,000 blood samples, covering a wide range of pediatric diseases.
A large majority of participants consenting to prospective genomic analyses also consent to analysis of their de-identified electronic medical records (EMRs). EMRs are longitudinal, with a mean duration of 6.5 years. CAG has committed to releasing genotype and phenotype data for 4000 individuals diagnosed with asthma, ADHD, atopic dermatitis, GERD (1000 for each), and 1000 individuals on the upper and lower ranges of Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) levels to dbGaP. We will also release genotype/phenotype of 3000 controls.
Relevant phenotype data includes primary diagnoses ... (Show More)
