Rhythm Pharmaceuticals and Genomenon will discuss their efforts to assemble a database of mutations associated with rare genetic disorders of obesity, and how this was optimized to facilitate a deep understanding of the variant landscape of melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R)-pathway genes. This database may help identify MC4R-pathway deficient individuals who might benefit from future precision therapies.
