Abstract

We recently identified two novel genomic regions with robust evidence for associaiton with endometriosis. The result does not give immediate insights into the genes or pathways contributing to disese because the genes in each region assocaited with increased risk need to be clearly identified. This project aims to find the gene or genes responsible in each region to help develop reliable disease biomarkers and effective preventative and therapeutic strategies for this important disease.
