Brief description The only known causes of ALS are gene mutations. State-of-the-art technologies will be used to find genetic causes of ALS to add to existing diagnostic testing and facilitate investigation into disease mechanism. ALS patients experience different disease courses, with variable age of onset, progression and duration of disease even among those with identical gene mutations. We will examine a well-characterised ALS patient cohort with differing disease manifestations to identify disease modifiers.
