Orofacial Cleft Genetics Study Made Available Through Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program

Our friends at National Institute of Health's Kids First shared with us the findings from their research study on genetics surrounding orofacial clefts. Read all about the genetics behind this craniofacial difference. Many thanks to Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program for sharing this information with us. 

The Common Fund’s Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program (Kids First) is pleased to announce that whole genome sequence data for the “Genomic Studies of Orofacial Cleft Birth Defects” project (Accession Number:phs001168.v1.p1) are now available for access through NIH’s Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP)

This Kids First cohort was selected for sequencing in 2015. Additional datasets from childhood cancer and other structural birth defects patient cohorts, selected through our X01 projects are forthcoming.
