Detection of Novel Mutations that Cause Autosomal Dominant Retinitis Pigmentosa in Candidate Genes
News Apr 09, 2013
Purpose of this study was to devise an effective method for detecting mutations in 12 genes commonly associated with autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP) that account for more than 95% of known mutations.
This study was published online in Molecular Vision and is free to access.
Scientists have developed a way of amplifying DNA on a scale suitable for use in the emerging fields of DNA-based computing and molecular robotics. Their method could improve disease diagnostics and accelerate the development of biosensors, for example, for food and environmental applications.
