S09: GMS: The Complex Genetics of CF & Their Functional Effects

Oct 10, 2014 10:30am ‐ Oct 10, 2014 12:20pm

Standard: $49.99


Recent research has identified modifier genes of CF disease severity through genome-wide association studies, linkage analysis studies and candidate gene approaches. This session will describe several studies focusing on how to understand the biological and functional significance of several of these modifier genes.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss the importance of understanding modifier gene function to potential CF therapies
  • Describe ways to dissect functional significance of modifier genes
  • Identify putative modifier genes of CF disease severity
