To date, 15 genes that play a role in the expression of the syndrome elsewhere elsewhere in the world. Michaud and his team will. Their research to better understand the exact function of the gene and the specific effect of each mutation.
.. In the space of about two centuries, the first colonists settled initiated in the Lower St. Lawrence region , and from there other families along the river in the east to Mont – Joli and then along the Matapedia River to settle.
