|This website has been developed to provide information to patients, families, health care providers, students and the general public on the unique conditions of chromosomal mosaicism. We have tried to create an easy-to-navigate, comprehensive website of interest for those both with or without a scientific background and to provide in-depth coverage of specific abnormalities.
If you are * new * to the term chromosomal mosaicism, we encourage you to navigate through the site from beginning to end to gain a complete understanding of the complexities of these conditions. Please be sure to use the glossary for simple explanations and links to other sites.
If you are familiar with the conditions of chromosomal mosaicism but you are looking for more in-depth information, look for the sections designated with "more scientific details". In these sections we have provided more exhaustive descriptions of some of the mechanisms behind these conditions. If you are looking for information on a specific abnormality then you may want to jump straight to the Chromosome specific information section.
Please note, that while we are happy to provide the information in this website to you, we cannot give out medical advice over the internet. We feel that it is important to preserve the health care provider-patient relationship. However, please feel free to refer your health care provider to our site and the references herein.
We are very interested in learning of new cases of prenatally detected mosaicism and hearing of pregnancy outcomes. More about our research can be found on our lab website.
