Genetic causes of arthrogryposis multiplex congenita

With this study we would like to identify genes with mutations that lead to a disease pattern in which the children are already akinetic in the womb and are therefore born with stiff joints. To achieve this, we are ascertaining the base sequences of genes that play a role in the development of the muscular and nervous system.
