“Single Cell Analysis of Brain Somatic Mosaicism”

Objectives:

  • Somatic Mosaicism is common in the neurotypic brain.
  • Types of somatic mosaicism include single nucleotide variants, retroelement insertions, and large copy number variants.
  • Genetic association studies for neurological disease typically use blood genomes, the study of brain genomes may reveal so-called “missing heritability.”
