Comprehensive molecular testing for mutations in the DMD gene causing Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy (DMD/BMD) is challenging because of the large size of the gene and the variety of mutation types. There is an increasing demand for comprehensive DMD gene molecular testing, including deletion/duplication testing of 79 exons and direct sequencing of… CONTINUE READING
