GENETIC Disease study in QUÉBEC

The October 2005 issue of the JOURNAL OF HUMAN GENETICS had an article about the discovery of a new gene responsible for Retinitis Pigmentosa, a degenerative disease. The Québec population is often used for such genetic studies since only about 250 forefathers provide an ideal gene pool.
The study is under the auspices of the McGill University Health Center (MUHC) in Montréal, QC. More information is available by clicking on the ORANGE title above.
