Biochemistry researchers target brain cell disorder

Asparagine synthetasedeficiency (ASD) keeps brain cells from developing and growing normally. It causes children to have small heads and brains, and epilepsy-like seizures. Now Biochemistry and Molecular Biology researchers are using patient cells to learn more about ASD.
