This is the third topic in the webinar series on ‘Sanger Sequencing & Fragment Analysis made easy’.
Repetitive DNA sequences comprise half of the human genome and include at least 1.6 million short tandem repeats with dark functions and unknown disease implications. Recent genome-wide studies have illuminated thousands of associations of such repeat elements with changes in gene expression. In addition, over 30 Mendelian disorders are known to be caused by triplet repeat expansions. Thus there is a rapidly growing appreciation that repetitive “dark” DNA is discoverable, discernible and diagnostic.
