This study uses whole genome sequencing (WGS) to help researchers identify inherited genetic causes of craniofacial disorders. WGS is a relatively new type of test that searches through genetic material for DNA changes that can cause disease. Researchers will compare WGS information obtained from blood samples of family members who have a congenital craniofacial disorder to family members who do not have a congenital craniofacial disorder.
Children who have been diagnosed with a congenital craniofacial disorder that can be inherited, along with their family members, are invited to take part in the study.
Males and Females: All ages
A one-time blood sample will be collected along with medical record information for participants.
Duration: Not applicable
