Next-Generation DNA Sequencing to Improve Diagnosis for Muscular Dystrophy, University of Nottingham Study

Published: Mar 06, 2012

Scientists at The University of Nottingham have used a revolutionary new DNA-reading technology for a research project that could lead to correct genetic diagnosis for muscle-wasting diseases. The technique could be used to offer people with muscular dystrophy, or a related neuromuscular condition, a more accurate prognosis, which would enable them to make more informed choices on life decisions, including family planning.
