Third-party-funded project

Cloning of the Best disease gene

Project management at the University of Würzburg:

Participating scientists:

Best vitelliform macular dystrophy is an autosomal dominant disorder of unknown causes. To identify the
underlying gene defect the disease locus has been mapped to an ~1.4-Mb region on chromosome 11q12?q13.1. The cloning of all genes in this region may be needed to indentify the Best disease gene.

Key words:
    vitelliform macular dystrophy
    Best disease
    positional cloning
