The bioinformatics pipeline at AiLife enables the detection of SNVs, Indels, CNVs and SVs as well as uniparental disomy (UPD) and absence of heterozygosity (AOH) detections.
In 65%-75% of cases, the cause is a deletion of the father's chromosome in the 15q11-q13 region, 20%-30% of patients will have maternal uniparental disomy of chromosome 15, and a defect in the region that controls the imprinting process is responsible in only 1%-3% of patients (6,7).
The couples should be aware of the potential risks encountered with implantation of mosaic embryos, their lower implantation rate and higher abortion rate, the risk of fetal demise or uniparental disomy, the emotional and financial risk and also the couples should be informed that most of associated risks following mosaic embryos transfer are still unknown.
Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a neurodevelopmental disorder resulting from absence of paternally imprinted genes in the 15q11-13 region, caused by deletion in the paternal chromosome (del15q) in about 70% of cases or disomy of the maternal chromosome [maternal uniparental disomy of chromosome 15 (mUPD15)] in about 25% (1).

Aunque el estudio confirma a la madre como la principal cuidadora, tambien aparece la figura de madre cabeza de familia o grupo uniparental por linea materna, cuyas condiciones sociales son mas precarias por la inestabilidad economica y las escasas redes de apoyo, lo cual la deja en condicion de vulnerabilidad y riesgo social, afectando a su vez el cuidado y la atencion integral que requiere el nino o nina con discapacidad.
