Growth Curves for Genetic Syndromes and Physical Characteristics
The Growth Curves for Genetic Syndromes and Physical Characteristics virtual issue comprises prototypic articles published in AJMG over the last few decades. These types of curves are crucial as underscored throughout the series on papers in the January 2009 Special Issue of AJMG, Elements of Morphology: Standard Terminology, and more recently, in the November 2012 Special Issue of AJMG, Growth Charts in Genetic Syndromes. These articles are among the most widely read and cited in the Journal.
