Research lines

At the section Medical Genomics we investigate genome variation in relation with human (disease) phenotypes. In particular, we focus on disorders of the brain. The research program can be subdivided into three research lines. In addition we have a genomics facility for genotyping and sequencing (Dr. P. Rizzu).

  • Genetics of neurodegenerative diseases (Prof. P. Heutink, Dr. P. Rizzu)
  • Genetics of behavioral traits and psychiatric illnesses (Dr. D. Posthuma, Dr. Z. Bochdanovits)
  • Genome variation, populations and human evolution (Prof. P. Heutink, Dr. Z. Bochdanovits)
