New Information Guide to 2q13 Microduplications - Families Wanted!
We would very much like to hear from families with a "pure" 2q13 microduplication in order to gather information for a new guide we are preparing. This guide will only be about people with small duplications confined to 2q13 alone rather than those with larger duplications of 2q, with changes in different regions of chromosome 2 or with 2q13 microduplications accompanied by different chromosome disorders. Our registered families affected by 2q13 microduplications will be contacted directly but if you are not yet a member of Unique and have a 2q13 microduplication in your family and would like to know more about this new guide, please send an email to Of course, anyone with any rare chromosome disorder is very welcome to join Unique and should email for free membership.
