Abstract

In 2012, researchers published extensively on the genetic and clinicopathological characterization of patients with the newly discovered C9ORF72 repeat expansions, which cause amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia. Novel ALS-linked genes and genetic modifiers were identified through screening in animal models and patients.
