Table 1 Overview of the developmental disorders that were included in the screening (total N = 367) after quality control (QC) and filtering (see the “Methods” section and Fig. 1a)

From: Screening for genes that accelerate the epigenetic aging clock in humans reveals a role for the H3K36 methyltransferase NSD1
