DNA double helix and a heart shaped cloud

Sudden unexpected death may in many cases be due to sudden cardiac death where the heart unexpectedly stops functioning. In many cases this is due to genetic variation that causes non-functional proteins in the heart and thus an increased risk of sudden cardiac death.

In this project we worked with next generation sequencing to identify causative variant, prediction and prevalence, as well as investigating the functional consequence of different genetic variants found.
