- The purpose of this study is to identify changes in genes that cause human diseases. We would like to obtain some of you or your child s DNA and test for changes in genes that may contribute to a disease in you or your family.
-To allow for exomic or genomic sequencing of NICHD patients or family members in order to identify changes in genes that cause or contribute to a specific disease.
- Children who are enrolled in an NICHD clinical study where the condition being studied may have a genetic cause.
- Family members of a child who is eligible for this study.
- Children and family members will supply DNA samples. If the samples are already available, no further DNA will be needed.
- If DNA is not available, samples of either blood or skin will be taken.
- We will use these samples with new DNA sequencing technology that looks at all the human genes we know about. This is known as exome and genome sequencing.
