15q13.3 microdeletions in IGE

This 2009 blog post has been transferred to the EuroEPINOMICS blog from www.epilepsygenetics.net.

The first paper of 2009 for this blog is a publication from our own consortium.  We describe the first microdeletion that predisposes to Idiopathic Generalised Epilepsy that is found in 1% of patients with IGE.  The same microdeletion had been identified previously in various neurodevelopmental disorders including schizophrenia, autism and intellectual disability. http://1.usa.gov/npuzk4
