Deep sequencing reveals mosaic mutations in brain disorders
Using deep sequencing of candidate genes, researchers have identified mosaic mutations – mutations that exist in only some of the body's cells, because they arose as a result of a copying error during cell division rather than being present in the sperm or egg – in about a third of patients with malformations of the cerebral cortex.
