We will conduct the analysis of the next generation sequencing data in Aim 2 to evaluate the presence of additional rare and common variants in addition to the MYBPC325 deletion. These studies are designed to evaluate whether additional cardiomyopathic variants contribute to the manifestation of cardiomyopathy and heart failure in gene carriers of MYBPC325. It is estimated that more than 400,000 South Indians live in the Chicago area and that nearly 8% of these individuals are carriers of the MYBPC325 variant. We have experience in whole genome analysis for cardiomyopathy as well as extensive experience derived from genetic testing in cardiomyopathy families.
