Utah Researchers Develop Genetic Map for Down Syndrome

Researchers at the University of Utah have developed a high-resolution genetic map that outlines the development of diseases often associated with Down syndrome.
Down syndrome individuals typically face a host of problems such as intellectual disabilities, heart defects and Alzheimer's disease. The map, produced by researchers at the U. Brain Institute and colleagues at Yale University, may help direct future studies and clinical treatments for a wide range of birth defects related to the disability.
