Delineating candidate genes at the chromosomal breakpoint regions in the apparently balanced chromosome rearrangements (ABCR) has been shown to be more effective with the emergence of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies. We employed a large-insert (7-11 kb) paired-end tag sequencing technology (DNA-PET) to systematically analyze genome of four(More)
The diagnosis of childhood neurological disorders remains challenging given the overlapping clinical presentation across subgroups and heterogeneous presentation within subgroups. To determine the underlying genetic cause of a severe neurological disorder in a large consanguineous Pakistani family presenting with severe scoliosis, anarthria and progressive(More)
Duchenne muscular dystrophy and Becker muscular dystrophy are X-linked recessive diseases of muscle degeneration caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene. More than half of our local Asian patients have point mutations that cannot be detected by conventional multiplex polymerase chain reaction deletion screening. This study aimed to develop mutational(More)
