Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders characterized by recurrent epileptic seizures. As one of the most prevalent chronic neurological disorders, it affects about 3.5-6.5 per 1000 children and 10.8 per 1000 elderly people. Genetics is believed to be involved in the majority of cases. Some epilepsies are due to a single gene defect (1-2%), while most are due to the interaction of multiple genes and environmental factors.
EpilepsyGene is a comprehensive genetic database for epilepsies, providing integrated genetic, genomic and biological data to facilitate the study of epilepsy.
