Creation of a DNA repository to identify deafness genes

ID: 34
Status: Completed
Start date: July 2001
End Date: September 2018


This project is a collaborative effort between Gallaudet (Biology Program, Department of Science, Technology, and Mathematics) and the Department of Human Genetics at the Medical College of Virginia to establish a large repository of DNA samples from deaf individuals and their families. These samples are screened for common forms of deafness and then made available to other investigators for studies of hereditary deafness.
