Monogenic disorders

Next Generation sequencing data
Development and application of high-throughput sequencing-based assays for affordable diagnostics of known monogenic disorders Identification and validation of SNPs and/or InDel markers in Indian popu

Genomics, Next Generation sequencing, genetic diagnostics, familial disorders
India has a rich resource of patients with rare single gene diseases, owing to the large population and practice of consanguineous marriages. This provides a unique opportunity for identification of novel genes for various known, but deviating from existing literature, as well as unexplained inherited phenotypes which in turn can help in better prenatal diagnosis and management of these diseases
