Familial psoriasis

We have recently identified a large kindred where psoriasis seems to be dominantly inherited. We are looking to collaborate on this family with a group actively involved in psoriasis genetics.

We think the family may allow for the identification/confirmation of psoriasis linked genetics loci.
As the genetics of psoriasis is not one of our research foci, we would be happy to share this material with a group interested in it.

Thank you.
