Additional Study Information:

Several children are born with birth defects every day. Through extensive genetic research, we have learned over the years that there are genetic factors that can contribute to the occurrence of some of these defects, especially in children with more than one congenital defect. However, the underlying genetic causes of many birth defects still remain unknown. The goal of this study is to use a sophisticated technology called whole exome/genome sequencing to identify underlying genetic causes of surgical birth defects. The identification of such genes, and examination of their structure and function, will also allow us to develop a better understanding of them and ultimately lead to knowledge of ways to better prevent and treat these disorders.
