EGAD00001000671 Illumina HiSeq 2000; 5 Primary sclerosing chloangitis is a rare autoimmune disease of the liver (prevalence = 10/100,000) with a mean age of onset of 40 years. We are currently undertaking GWAS and immunochip experiments to identify loci underlying PSC susceptibility. Through our collaborators at the University of Calgary we have access to DNA from three parent-offspring trios where the children required liver transplants due to PSC before the age of 9. These are extremely rare cases indeed and we believe that exome-sequencing represents a powerful means of identifying the causal mutation underlying this severe phenotype.
