The EPIGENE network: a French initiative to harmonize and improve the nationwide diagnosis of monogenic epilepsies.

The ambition of this network is to harmonize and improve the diagnostic strategy of Mendelian epileptic disorders using next-generation sequencing, in France. Over the years, five additional centers have joined EPIGENE and the network has been working in close collaboration, since 2018, with the French reference center for rare epilepsies (CRéER). The EPIGENE network also promotes scientific collaborations on genetic epilepsies.
