Researchers: Dr Kishore Kumar (Principal investigator)

Brief description There are many ‘movement disorders’ including Parkinson disease, dystonia, and hereditary spastic paraplegia. These disorders can be caused by mutations (errors in the genetic code) in different genes. The discovery of these genes has improved our understanding of the underlying disease mechanisms. We will use ‘whole genome sequencing’ to read a person’s entire genetic material in a single experiment, allowing us to identify a genetic diagnosis and to discover entirely new disease-causing genes.
