Subproject for Elizabeth McNally

Project: Research project

Description

We propose to investigate the genetic susceptibility to sudden unexplained death in young adults and children by using cases collected by the Sudden Death in the Young registry. Our work will generate whole human genome sequence data on 500 sudden death cases, which will allow us to perform a targeted analysis of several genes responsible for various heart disorders that can cause sudden death.
