Investigating the molecular genetic bias of congenital scoliosis and the spondylocostal dysostoses

Molecular genetic analysis aimed at furthering our understanding of the genetic basis of congenital scoliosis and the spondylocostal dysostoses is planned. Genome-wide scanning will be performed in a number of families, followed by sequencing of candidate gene(s). This will enhance scientific knowledge of congenital scoliosis and the spondylocostal dysostoses as well as potentially being able to provide genetic prenatal diagnosis for the families with very severe phenotypes, and possibly other affected families.
