Scientists of the Genome Research Institute under the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology are contributing to the accurate diagnosis of five rare diseases by using next-generation gene sequencing technology. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are about 7,000 rare diseases worldwide, of which 80 percent have genetic components and 75 percent affect children (Bavisetty et al., 2013). Scientists of the Genome Research Institute meet the doctors of the Central Pediatric Hospital Maple syrup urine disease Seckel syndrome According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are about 7,000 rare diseases worldwide, of which 80 percent have genetic components and 75 percent affect children (Bavisetty et al., 2013). The full genome sequencing of two patients diagnosed with Seckel syndrome discovered three new mutations on the PCNT gene.
