Unexplored genomic control regions yield the key to finding causes of rare disease

AI nuclear energy background, future innovation of disruptive technology

Scientists have discovered the cause of a rare condition within a part of the genome that has been largely unexplored in medical genetics. A team at the University of Exeter has found genetic changes in a region that controls the activity of the genome, turning on or off genes, and in doing so they have found a key that could unlock other causes of rare conditions.
