From Genotype to Phenotype | Illumina Webinar

15 February 2016

Lachlan Jolly, Research Fellow, School of Medicine at the University of Adelaide, Pediatrics and Reproductive Health, discusses his insights on gene function in cell models of brain development. He will review how genes linked to intellectual disability are crucial for brain development and also highlight the identification and characterization of x-linked intellectual disability genes using next-generation sequencing(NGS) illumina.com/technology/next-generation-sequencing.html in patient derived cell lines. This work has led to a better understanding of relevant disease mechanisms that converge on embryonic stages of brain development.
