Genetic sequencing to identify the reason for hearing loss in children

Project: Dissertation

Project Details


Hearing loss is the most common sensory impairment in newborn children. The background is diverse, but in more than half on the patients with sensorineural hearing loss the reason is believed to be genetical. The genetic background is heterogenous and within this project we aim to describe the genetic variation in our population in southern Sweden.
