Brief description:  Achondroplasia is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by abnormal bone growth that results in short stature with disproportionately short arms and legs, and a large head Intelligence and life span are usually normal.
Achondroplasia is associated with a defect in the FGFR3 gene. 99% off affected individuals exhibit mutations in the FGFR3 gene. A significant number of affected individuals result from spontaneous mutations of this gene. Using the NCBI web page I located a homologous gene in C. elegans(egl-15) and developed primers using the E-RNAi web page. I have not had time to go any further at this point.
