The Epilepsiome

The idea. On this page, you will find our first steps towards creating the Epilepsiome, our knowledgebase for genes related to human epilepsies. The Epilepsiome is under construction. Over the next months, we will move parts of our blog posts to “static” pages that will grow dynamically provide basic information about epilepsy and genes. These sections will be updated regularly and we will announce the updates in our Friday posts and emails. If you don’t receive the Channelopathist yet, our weekly email update on everything relating to epilepsy and genes, you can subscribe here.

Structure. Basically, the Epilepsiome will be growing from our blog for now and being up-to-date and providing current information from an epilepsy perspective is our main goal. Each gene page or syndrome page will have links to the most recent blog posts about this topic.

Missing something? We are fully aware that the Epilepsiome is only a skeleton at this moment and we need your help to point out what is missing. Please put a comment on the respective page or email us if you feel that something is missing, if you have specific scientific questions, or if you would like to add content.

This is where you will find information on genes related to human epilepsies

SCN1A SCN2A SCN8A
STXBP1 KCNQ2 GABRG2
CDKL5 PCDH19 DNM1
KCNT1 LGI1 CSTB

Here are the links to various genetic epilepsy syndromes

Infantile Spasms Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome Dravet Syndrome
Ohtahara Syndrome Myoclonic Astatic Epilepsy MMPSI
IGE/GGE Benign Neonatal Seizures Benign Infantile Seizures
Febrile Seizures GEFS+ Rolandic Epilepsy
