Solve ME/CFS Initiative webinar
Date: May 28, 2019
Time: 10:00am PT or 18:00 BST
Title: Whole genome sequencing and analysis of ME/CFS
Speakers: Dr Liz Worthey and Dr Camille Birch
The discussion will centre on their Ramsay-supported whole genome sequencing study. Using a comprehensive genomic and informatics approach, Drs. Worthey and Birch are exploring the hypothesis that ME/CFS in an individual may be caused by a genetic alteration(s) in one or more metabolic pathways, leading to an unstable cellular energetic state, and that the course of illness is based on the type of variant or where in a metabolic pathway an individual’s defect lies.
