Quotes

They had a model organism, a mouse, but they didn't have evidence that it affected people. It was a perfect storm" said Baylor geneticist Dr Wojciech Wiszniewski, author of another study
...disorders, we are gaining fundamental insight into basic physiological mechanisms important for human brain development and function" Gunel said. "We learn a lot about normal biology by studying what happens when things go wrong."
"This is the first human disorder associated with the gene CLP1" said Dr. Ender Karaca, post-doctoral associate in the department of molecular and human genetics at Baylor
...in the UC San Diego departments of Neurosciences and Pediatrics and at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego, a research affiliate of UC San Diego.
