EpiSignature Study into DHDDS Gene Mutation

EpiSignature is a study of genomic DNA methylation patterns (beyond the coding sequences) to differentiate patients with similar or different phenotypes and genetic changes at the DNA coding level.

Genetic changes in the DHDDS gene have been found in some cases to be associated with a progressive course, while in other cases a static course. EpiSignature tries to determine whether there is any significant difference in methylation pattern that could account for such difference, thus potentially providing some insight for progression and prognosis.
