BACKGROUND Sandhoff disease is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by β-hexosaminidase deficiency and accumulation of GM2 ganglioside resulting in progressive motor neuron manifestations and death from respiratory failure and infections in infantiles. Pathogenic mutations in HEXB gene were observed which leads to enzyme activity reduction and(More)
Mutations in the dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) and dihydropteroate synthase (DHPS) genes of Plasmodium falciparum have been correlated with and used to detect antifolate treatment failure, such as sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP), in regions endemic for malaria. To determine the association between molecular markers of SP resistance and in vivo drug(More)
BACKGROUND Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is among arrhythmia disorders of the heart that causes sudden cardiac death in young individuals. As yet, most of investigations have focused on nuclear genome for finding genetic defects in this disorder, but some of the cases with LQTS cannot be explained by mutations of identified genes. On the other hand, it has been(More)
The Human Genome Project (HGP) refers to the international scientific research program, formally begun in October 1990 and completed in 2003, mainly designated to discover all the human genes, analyzing the structure of human DNA and determining the location of all human genes and also making them accessible for further biological and medical(More)
The Metagenomics and Metadesign of the Subways and Urban Biomes (MetaSUB) International Consortium is a novel, interdisciplinary initiative comprised of experts across many fields, including genomics, data analysis, engineering, public health, and architecture. The ultimate goal of the MetaSUB Consortium is to improve city utilization and planning through(More)
