National Scientific Consortium, with BBI Members, Exploring Tests to Discover Causes of Unexplained Genetic Disorders

By July 28, 2023No Comments

A consortium of scientists at five leading research centers in the United States will soon publish a paper seeking to address a daunting challenge in precision medicine: identifying the best genetic test to make precise genetic diagnoses in families with a Mendelian condition.

One of those five centers is at the University of Washington and its researchers include several members of the Brotman Baty Institute. The GREGoR Consortium (Genomics Research to Elucidate the Genetics of Rare diseases), established in 2021 and funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute, seeks to develop and apply novel strategies to discover the basis of unexplained rare genetic disorders.
