Developmental Brain Disorder Genes Database
A curated resource for researchers & clinicians providing genotype and phenotype data from six neurodevelopmental disorders obtained from published literature.
Intellectual Disability ● Autism ● Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ● Schizophrenia ● Bipolar Disorder ● Epilepsy
Tiered Classification Methodology
- Tiers 1 and 2 are categorized as high confidence candidate genes
Tier 1Genes with three or more de novo pathogenic loss-of-function variants
Tier 2Genes with two de novo pathogenic loss-of-function variants
- Tiers 3 and 4 are categorized as emerging candidate genes
Tier 3Genes with one de novo pathogenic loss-of-function variant
Tier 4Genes with no de novo pathogenic loss-of-function variant
- AR is categorized as high confidence candidate genes
ARGenes with autosomal recessive inheritance
Tier 1: 150 genes Tier 2: 71 genes Tier 3: 108 genes Tier 4: 156 genes AR: 117 genes
Investigators are encouraged to submit cases for inclusion in the Developmental Brain Disorder Genes Database.
