Genetic mutations has been proved to be associated wth the onset of cardiomyopathy. In the present study, we intend to identify new related variants or genes. From March, 2003 to November, 2017, patients diagnosed as cardiomyopathy were consecutively recruited, and their sampled were drawn from peripheral blood. Paired control group were also enrolled. The whole exome sequencing was used to find out the variants associated with the onset of cardiomyopathy and its prognosis.
