    • Genome-wide screening for DNA variants associated with reading and language traits 

      Gialluisi, Alessandro; Newbury, Dianne F; Wilcutt, Erik G; Olson, Richard K; DeFries, John C; Brandler, William M; Pennington, Bruce F; Smith, Shelley D; Scerri, Thomas S; Simpson, Nuala H; Luciano, Michelle; Evans, David M; Bates, Timothy C; Stein, John F; Talcott, Joel B; Monaco, Anthony P; Paracchini, Silvia; Francks, Clyde; Fisher, Simon E; The SLI Consortium (2014-09) - Journal article
      Reading and language abilities are heritable traits that are likely to share some genetic influences with each other. To identify pleiotropic genetic variants affecting these traits, we first performed a Genome-wide ...
    • Identification of candidate genes for dyslexia susceptibility on chromosome 18 

      Scerri, Thomas S.; Paracchini, Silvia; Morris, Andrew; MacPhie, I. Laurence; Talcott, Joel; Stein, John; Smith, Shelley D.; Pennington, Bruce F.; Olson, Richard K.; DeFries, John C.; Monaco, Anthony P. (2010-10-28) - Journal article
      Background: Six independent studies have identified linkage to chromosome 18 for developmental dyslexia or general reading ability. Until now, no candidate genes have been identified to explain this linkage. Here, we set ...
    • PCSK6 is associated with handedness in individuals with dyslexia 

      Scerri, Thomas S.; Brandler, William M.; Paracchini, Silvia; Morris, Andrew P.; Ring, Susan M.; Richardson, Alex J.; Talcott, Joel B.; Stein, John; Monaco, Anthony P. (2011-02) - Journal article
      Approximately 90% of humans are right-handed. Handedness is a heritable trait, yet the genetic basis is not well understood. Here we report a genome-wide association study for a quantitative measure of relative hand skill ...
