Clinical validity: Help
The most common cause of transient neonatal diabetes is overexpression of imprinted genes PLAGL1 and HYMAI at 6q24, due to either paternal uniparental disomy of chromosome 6 (UPD6), duplication of 6q24 on the paternally inherited allele, or hypomethylation of the maternally inherited allele. 6q24 Methylation-Specific MLPA can detect copy number … View more

Variant Interpretation:
What is the protocol for interpreting a variation as a VUS? Help
Variants are identified and evaluated using a custom collection of bioinformatic tools and comprehensively interpreted by our team of directors and genetic counselors.

Are family members with defined clinical status recruited to assess significance of VUS without charge? Help
