Genetic modifiers make an important contribution to neurological disease phenotypes. Significant progress has been made by studying genetic modifiers in model organisms. The ability to study complex genetic interactions in model systems contributes to our understanding of the genetic factors that influence neurological disease. This will lead to the development of novel therapeutic strategies and personalized treatment based on genetic risk.
