New advances in genomic technology are being introduced at a greater speed and are revolutionizing the field of genetics for both complex and Mendelian diseases. For instance, during the past few years, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified a large number of significant associations between genomic loci and movement disorders such as(More)
In this study, a consanguineous family with progressive myoclonus epilepsy (PME) was clinically examined and molecularly investigated to determine the molecular events causing disease. Since exclusion of known genes indicated that novel genes causing PME still remained unidentified, homozygosity mapping, exome sequencing, as well as validation and(More)
*These authors contributed equally to this work.Essential tremor (ET) is the most prevalent movement disorder affecting millions of people in the United States. Although a positive family history is one of the most important risk factors for ET, the genetic causes of ET remain unknown. In this study, whole exome sequencing and subsequent approaches were(More)
Essential tremor (ET) is the most prevalent movement disorder, affecting millions of people in the USA. Although a positive family history is one of the most important risk factors for ET, the genetic causes of ET remain unknown. In an attempt to identify genetic causes for ET, we performed whole-exome sequencing analyses in a large Spanish family with ET,(More)
Although in the last two decades there has been considerable progress in understanding the genetic basis of Parkinson's disease (PD), the majority of PD is sporadic and its genetic causes are largely unknown. In an attempt to identify novel genetic causes of PD, whole-exome sequencing and subsequent analyses were performed in a family featuring late-onset(More)
