    Bridget A Fernandez
    Discipline of Genetics, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St John s, NL, Canada
    Respir Res 13:64. 2012
    ..Individuals with Familial Pulmonary Fibrosis (FPF) have at least one affected first or second-degree relative and account for 0.5-20% of cases...

    BMC Med Genet 13:111. 2012
    ..Its core features are congenital neutropenia and a prominent venous skin pattern, and affected individuals have variable birth defects. Oculocutaneous albinism type 4 (OCA4) is caused by autosomal recessive mutations in SLC45A2...

    J Med Genet 47:195-203. 2010
    ..No physical or behavioural features have been identified that distinguish these individuals as having a distinct ASD subtype, but clinical data are limited...

    Susan J Moore
    Clinical Epidemiology Unit, Memorial University, St John s, Newfoundland, Canada
    Am J Med Genet A 132:352-60. 2005
    ..The features in this population do not support the notion that BBS and LMS are distinct. The lack of a genotype-phenotype correlation implies that BBS proteins interact and are necessary for the development of many organs...

    ..Based on these factors, we propose that the population of Newfoundland offers many advantages for genetic mapping of common diseases, compared with admixed populations, and even compared with other isolates...
