Study Description

The Epi4K project began in 2011 as an international, multi-center study that seeks to identify and characterize the genetic bases of complex epilepsies. The Center without Walls Epi4K project includes three cores and four scientific projects, as well as a steering committee comprised of the primary study investigators and representatives from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). The three cores include: (1) The Administrative Core which handles the overall coordination of Epi4K activities; (2) The Sequencing, Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core which is responsible for generating the next-generation sequence data, inferring the genetic variation in each of the study participants, and performing the primary analyses to identify epilepsy genes; and (3) The Phenotyping and Clinical Informatics Core which verifies and archives all the phenotypic data from each study participant. The proposed number of patients to be sequenced and analyzed in the scientific projects is a minimum of 4,000; thus the Center was named "Epi4K: Gene Discovery in 4,000 ... (Show More)
