Abstract

(Abstracted from Nat Genet 2018;50:487–492)

Germline de novo mutations (DNMs) arise spontaneously in parental gametes and are both drivers of evolution and a common cause of sporadic disorders. The total number of DNMs is highly correlated with paternal age and with maternal age to a lesser extent.
