Craniofacial genetics: where are we going?

We teamed up with colleagues Seth Weinberg (University of Pittsburgh) and Rob Cornell (University of Iowa) to curate a special craniofacial genetics collection for PLOS Genetics. We selected published papers in PLOS journals reflecting our particular areas of interest: craniofacial morphogenesis, dysmorphology and syndromes, and normal human facial variation. We highlighted papers that made substantial contributions to the craniofacial field and looked to the future in high-throughput functional studies, phenotyping, and genomics.
