Statistics from Altmetric.com

We would describe our genetic studies in primary ciliary dyskinesia1 as ‘cutting edge’, rather than ‘beyond the fringe’.2 Indeed, we predict that in 5 years genetic testing will be more readily available and used worldwide for diagnostic studies in primary ciliary dyskinesia than high speed ciliary waveform analysis. Would Drs Bush and Hogg like to make a wager?
