Genetic studies of human disease have traditionally focused on the detection of disease-causing mutations in afflicted individuals. Here we describe a complementary approach that seeks to identify healthy individuals resilient to highly penetrant forms of genetic childhood disorders. A comprehensive screen of 874 genes in 589,306 genomes led to the(More)
IMPORTANCE Inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) are a group of retinal degenerative diseases presenting genetic and clinical heterogeneities, which have challenged the genetic and clinical diagnoses of IRDs. Genetic evaluations of patients with IRD might result in better clinical assessments and better management of patients. OBJECTIVE To determine the(More)
Clinical phenotypes of congenital myasthenic syndromes and primary mitochondrial disorders share significant overlap in their clinical presentations, leading to challenges in making the correct diagnosis. Next generation sequencing is transforming molecular diagnosis of inherited neuromuscular disorders by identifying novel disease genes and by identifying(More)
