Protective Genetic Factors Against Neurological Diseases

2019-04-17 12:55:22 | BioPortfolio


NIH Precision Medicine Initiative, started in May 2018, will enroll one million people through an online portal. It hopes to identify genetic variants affecting a variety of human phenotypic outcomes. A giant set of data like this may enable an association of genetic variants with a certain phenotype. However, the association is often compromised due to the collection of phenotypic data that is not well controlled or standardized creating "noisy" data. These phenotypic "noises" can be largely eliminated in clinical studies with stringent criteria and standardization of outcome measurements.

In this study, by looking mainly at genetic information and nerve conduction speed, we hope to eliminate the extra "noises" in the data set. Eliminating the extra "noises" should allow us to be able to determine if there are genetic differences between neurological disorders and healthy controls, and if these genetic differences can be attributed to the speed of the nerve conduction.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An inherited metabolic disorder characterized by the intralysosomal accumulation of sulfur-containing lipids (sulfatides) and MUCOPOLYSACCHARIDES. Excess levels of both substrates are present in urine. This is a disorder of multiple sulfatase (arylsulfatases A, B, and C) deficiency which is caused by the mutation of sulfatase-modifying factor-1. Neurological deterioration is rapid.

A neurological disorder characterized by an excessive startle reaction with ABNORMAL REFLEX; MYOCLONIC JERKS; and MUSCLE HYPERTONIA.

A neurological disorder characterized by inattentiveness and the inability to form short term memories. It is caused by THIAMINE DEFICIENCY due to chronic ALCOHOLISM.

Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of the neurological system, processes or phenomena; includes the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.

A neurological disorder in which a sensory stimulus, usually tactile but more rarely other sensory modalities, is misperceived in a location distant from the original stimulus.
