Science Advance: Identification of novel FMR1 variants by massively parallel sequencing in developmentally delayed males

Dr. Stephen Warren and Dr. Tim Read were the recipients of a ACTSI Research Technologies Proof-of-Principle award for the Emory-GRA Genomics Center. The Genome analyzers (454 Sequencing GS-FLX instrument, Illumina GAII) and peripheral equipment were purchased to establish a next-generation sequencing core at Emory. Four projects and one publication were supported.
