- Junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB) is a clinically and genetically heterogenous group of genetic skin disorders.•
- We show the utility of WES in understanding the phenotype and genotype spectrum in four Indian JEB families.•
- Computational modeling studies have been used to understand the probable molecular consequence of a missense mutation on the structure-function relationship of lamininβ3 protein.•
- This is the first report documenting the phenotype-genotype correlations of JEB patients from India.
