|N/A||American Founder Mutation Study||Aims to describe prevalence of a large genomic deletion encompassing exons 1 to 6 of the MSH2 gene that is widespread in the U.S population as a result of a founder effect. Click here for details on American Founder Mutation (AFM) families and publications.||Heather Hampel|

|05090||Storage of biological material for the discovery and characterization of genes involved in hereditary disease predisposition||
Determined by the Medical Genetics Program.
|N/A||Cardiovascular Genetics Data Repository||Males or females who are 18 years of age or older with either:
1) A personal diagnosis of a cardiovascular genetic condition (familial aneurysm, familial cardiomyopathy, familial dysrhythmia, familial hypercholesterolemia, early-onset CAD (males <55 or females <65), etc.) and/or
2) A family history of one of the above conditions or a family history that classifies them as being at increased familial risk for CAD.
