European craniofacial anomalies biobank to underpin future research into genetics: gene-gene and gene-environment interaction in cleft lip and / or palate

A EUROCRAN Biobank to underpin future research into gene-gene and gene-environment interaction in cleft lip and/or cleft palate (CL/P). This Biobank contains nuclear triad DNA underpinned by maternal exposure data and will be a unique resource for future research into genetic and environmental factors that are implicated in the aetiology of clefts. Through this, there exists a potential for identification of risk factors, thereby enabling targeted intervention to reduce a risk of clefts in future generations.
