The diagnostic potential of whole exome sequencing in infertile men due to sperm production defect

The diagnostic potential of whole exome sequencing in infertile men due to sperm production defect
Male factor infertility is an important clinical problem whose most severe phenotype, severe oligospermia or azoospermia, has a variety of genetic causes. Some, like Klinefelter syndrome or cystic fibrosis, are well understood, but most are still unknown, and Y chromosome microdeletions only explain a fraction of the remaining cases. In consanguineous and nonconsanguineous families, whole exome sequencing (WES) has been successfully used to identify likely causal mutations in severe oligospermia (1, 2).
