BCM-MitomeNGSSM Usher Syndrome Panel
In August 2012, the Medical Genetics Laboratories at Baylor College of Medicine announced the availability of our BCM-MitomeNGSSM Retinitis Pigmentosa panel and we were floored by the demand. We would like to thank everyone for their support. As a follow up to the successful launch of the Retinitis Pigmentosa panel, we would like to announce the availability of the BCM-MitomeNGSSM Usher syndrome panel.
Usher syndrome is a group of autosomal recessive disorders involving progressive degeneration of the retina that leads to severe visual impairment, and deafness in children. Each of the nine genes (CDH23, CLRN1, DFNB31, GPR98, MYO7A, PCDH15, USH1C, USH1G, and USH2A) in our Usher panel is 100% covered. With this panel, we are not only able to detect single nucleotide changes but also small deletions and duplications mutations.
Single gene Sanger Sequencing and Targeted Deletion/Duplication analysis are also available.
