What is EGI?
EGI is an initiative created to bridge the gap between people with epilepsy, clinicians, and researchers and advance precision medicine
in epilepsy. EGI has created a centralized database to hold the genetic data of people with epilepsy.
The data (called exome
data) will be analyzed and reanalyzed until the cause of the person’s epilepsy is found. Findings will be reported back to the person's doctor.
The data will also be made available to advance research.
