How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Hereditary hearing loss (HHL) is characterized by a very high genetic heterogeneity. In the Qatari population the role of GJB2, the worldwide HHL major player, seems to be quite limited compared to Caucasian populations. In this study we analysed 18 Qatari families affected by non-syndromic hearing loss using a targeted sequencing approach that all...
Background Sequencing technologies have grown exponentially in recent years resulting in next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms which are more efficient in terms of biochemistry, time and cost. NGS is particularly applicable to highly heterogeneous diseases such as non-syndromic hearing loss (NSHL). Currently, more than 80 genes are clinically...
The number of cases and severity of disease associated with dengue infection in Sri Lanka has been increasing since 1989, when the first epidemic of dengue hemorrhagic fever was recorded. We identified a new dengue virus 1 strain circulating in Sri Lanka that coincided with the 2009 dengue epidemic.
