Neurogenomics of speech and language disorders. Next-generation sequencing will yield large datasets of genomic variants with potential relevance for speech and language. Identification of key variants is critically dependent on multidisciplinary studies of function in cell lines, animal models and humans, along with integration of data on neurogenetic networks, as detailed in the text. The image under 'Next-generation sequencing' comes from istockphoto.com (DNA code; File #9614920), the boxshade plot under 'In silico analyses' is a subpart taken from Figure 4 of , the lefthand bottom panel of 'Cellular assays' is a subpart taken from Supplementary Figure 5c of , the 'Neurogenetic networks' image is taken from Figure 4b of  and the Zebrafinch image is reproduced with permission from Geoffrey Dabb and Canberra Ornithologists Group.
