An upcoming Special Issue of JCDD will focus on the genetics of congenital heart disease.
Congenital heart disease (CHD) affects almost 1% of the population. Currently, most patients survive to reproductive age, and the number of adult patients with CHD is increasing. Both environmental and genetic factors can cause CHD. Genomic technologies like array CGH (Comparative Genomic Hybridization) and next generation sequencing have led to new discoveries and have improved our understanding of the genetics of congenital heart disease. The cause of CHD remains, nevertheless, unknown in the majority of cases and a continued effort in elucidating the complex genetic landscape of CHD is needed in order to progress towards improved counselling and treatment of patients. We hope that you will contribute to this effort by submitting your work for publication in this Special Issue of JCDD.
