Ion AmpliSeq™ Epilepsy Research Panel  Hide Panel Description


Research to identify specific genetic causes of epilepsy is important but can be difficult because of pleiotropy, locus heterogeneity and accessibility of information. The Ion AmpliSeq™ Epilepsy Research Panel was designed based on extensive curation of peer-reviewed literature, disease research databases and consultation with key opinion leaders.
