The purpose of the workshop was to establish an international database of mutations, variations and their clinical presentations, to be able to determine if particular genetic variants of the gene are the cause of disease. The workshop brought together worldwide leaders in the Titin myopathy field, Titin family advocates, as well as representatives from other successfully developed groups.
