Biochemical disease mechanism

Glycosphingolipid biosynthesis of Homo sapiens. The disease associated enzyme is highlighted in red.



Current knowledge about mutations associated with the disease. - Separate into disease causing and neutral mutations. -- These sequence pages will be the starting point for collecting prediction results and result discussions.

Note: Currently (13.5.) you only need to care about the reference sequence pages. -- At a later stage we will assign mutations we expect you to work on. Then, it will make sense to create on page per mutation that is assigned to you.
