The overall goals of this project are to identify novel susceptibility variants to human nephrotic syndrome caused by focal segmental glomerulosclerosis FSGS and minimal change disease MCD. Using a variety of statistical and genetic approaches, including genome wide association analysis and rare copy number variations CNVs mapping. Data are then integrated with genetic analyses from mouse models from the partnering project. The identification of novel variants will provide insight into some of the genetic mechanisms that underlie FSGS.
