Neurogenomics of speech and language disorders: the road ahead

Genome Biol. 2013 Apr 18;14(4):204. doi: 10.1186/gb-2013-14-4-204.


Next-generation sequencing is set to transform the discovery of genes underlying neurodevelopmental disorders, and so offer important insights into the biological bases of spoken language. Success will depend on functional assessments in neuronal cell lines, animal models and humans themselves.
