It is estimated that over one-third of the world's population suffers from persistent or recurrent pain. Migraine is highly heritable and the majority of juveniles who suffer from the disorder have a mother or father who also have the disease. The blood or saliva samples will go through DNA analysis and be sequenced for candidate genes or subjected to whole-genome sequencing. By creating a MAPS GeneBank from these patients' blood/saliva donations we will ultimately be able to define genes for migraine and pain diseases.

A class of disabling primary headache disorders, characterized by recurrent unilateral pulsatile headaches. The two major subtypes are common migraine (without aura) and classic migraine (with aura or neurological symptoms). (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)
A subtype of migraine disorder, characterized by recurrent attacks of reversible neurological symptoms (aura) that precede or accompany the headache. Aura may include a combination of sensory disturbances, such as blurred VISION; HALLUCINATIONS; VERTIGO; NUMBNESS; and difficulty in concentrating and speaking. Aura is usually followed by features of the COMMON MIGRAINE, such as PHOTOPHOBIA; PHONOPHOBIA; and NAUSEA. (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)
