Best Practice Guidelines on Molecular Diagnostics for Duchenne/Becker muscular dystrophies

Following a meeting of senior scientists from Australia, Europe, USA and India in The Netherlands in November 2008, a consensus Best Practice Guidelines for molecular diagnosis of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy has also been published in Neuromuscular Disorders [20(6):422-427].

The guidelines recommend the appropriate tests that are to be carried out, interpretation of the results and how those results should be reported.
