Walllrath lab featured on the cover of Human Molecular Genetics

Current research from the laboratory of Dr. Lori Wallrath is featured on the cover of the April 1, 2012 issue of Human Molecular Genetics. The accompanying paper by George Dialynas, et al., describes their research done in collaboration with Steven Moore (Pathology) and Katherine Mathews (Pediatrics) on the development of a Drosophila model for LMNA-associated muscular dystrophy. Their studies identified new molecular markers that allow for the diagnosis of specific types of muscular dystrophy. In addition, their findings revealed novel molecular muscle phenotypes in patients with Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy.
