Euro-MRX consortium: a unique collaboration
The Euro-MRX consortium is a collaboration of five institutes, which was established to identify genes involved
in X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) and improve DNA diagnostics to facilitate proper counselling. The strength of the collaboration lies in the exchange of knowledge and materials between the participiants
and third party researchers, which has resulted in a
collection of clinical and molecular data of more than 600 well-characterized families.
Moreover, 17 of the 82 genes known to be causally involved in XLMR were identified by, or
in collaboration with, the consortium.
