(European Research Network for evaluation and improvement of screening,
Diagnosis and treatment of Inherited Disorders of Metabolism):
and BIMDG (British Inherited Metabolic Diseases Group)
This latter includes an online version of The BIMDG Directory of
UK laboratories diagnosing inborn errors.
All these have been set up on a preliminary basis and we are very
much interested in peoples feedback and suggestions, especially for
the UK directory, which as you will see is a fairly complex network
of tables. May I stress with regards to this that it is extremely
important to contact the laboratory concerned before sending samples.
Any changes to the UK directory should be sent to Dr Charles Pennock
who is responsible for setting up the original printed version; we
have merely converted it to html format.
All the work on these pages has been done by myself and Tim Bursby
(t.p.bursby at ncl.ac.uk) with Professor Kim Bartlett
