Project: Identification of novel genes involved in malformations of cortical development (MCD)

project duration
01-JAN-11 – 31-OCT-15
abstract
Malformations of cortical development (MCD) are an important cause of mental retardation. Thus far, only a couple of genes are known to be involved in MCD. In this project we will use a genome wide approach to sequence candidate genes involved in MCD in combination with migration assays for functional analysis in order to elucidate the pathways involved in neuronal migration.
