Help us find the genes that cause Tourette Syndrome
We are members of the Tourette Syndrome Association International Consortium for Genetics (TSAICG). The TSAICG is a group of clinicians and scientists who have been working together, trying to find genes that cause Tourette Syndrome (TS). In the last few years, we have identified some chromosomes that may hold TS genes. Now, we want to follow up those findings and identify the genes that cause TS. In order to do this, we need to collect information about tics and other symptoms and DNA from thousands of people with TS. Finding the genes that cause TS is a key step to improving diagnosis and treatment for people with TS.
We need you to help us reach this goal!
