Mining For Down syndrome Data

Down syndrome is a complex genetic condition. In order to help everyone understand how the extra chromosome affects the body, I am going to post a series of blogs on a number of specific subjects. I love to research and read the latest findings.....and by writing about them, I can help all of you learn about the latest research without having to go find the information yourselves. It will force me to put the pieces of information together into some logical order.

I read somewhere that if you want to really learn something, try teaching it to someone else!  So, that's what I am going to do.

This is the most exciting time for Down syndrome! The scientific breakthroughs are coming faster and faster. We need these great researchers, but who is putting the pieces together? I think of myself as a data miner. Somebody needs to dig out these precious nuggets of information and link them together. Stay tuned for a year of understandable science.
