On 27 november the virtual kick-off symposium of the Rare-Med Consorium took place.
Our whole research group joined and enjoyed the great talks, among which the great talk of our own teammember Lynn Backers about missing heritability in a rare disease, Bloom Syndrome.
First paper for Lynn
Lynn her first paper 'Missing heritability in Bloom syndrome: First report of a deep intronic variant leading to pseudo-exon activation in the BLM gene' was accepted and published in Clinical Genetics. Find it here.
After a whole period of scientific silence, our entire team was able to attend the first online OncoDot meeting organized by CRIG.
Charlotte was awarded for her storm session presentation ‘ISOLATION AND ENGRAFTMENT OF CIRCULATING TUMOR CELLS INTO ZEBRAFISH EMBRYOS TO PREDICT TUMOR RESPONSE OF OVARIAN CANCER PATIENTS’ at OncoDot1, congrats!
We want to thank the organization, looking forward to OncoDot2!
ENIGMA meeting 2020
Prof. Claes had a talk on the ENIGMA meeting about long read sequencing.
Jeroen, Mattias, Greet and Bram attended.
ONT London Calling 2020
Due to the coronavirus pandemic Oxford Nanopore Technology held their annual London Calling this year online. Kim, Mattias, Greet and Bram attended the whole meeting.
There was a training session about 'how to load a flongle', therefore the company shipped a demo kit so Bram could learn about the flongle.
From 6-9 june the annual European Society of Human Genetics were held online, Kim attended for our lab and had a poster presentation.
A new certificate for Lynn
Lynn got a certificate for the interuniversity postgraduate course in Human Genetics organised by the Belgian Society of Human Genetics (BeSHG). Congratulations!
Coming soon: Jeroens PhD defence
On monday 22/06 Jeroen will submit his doctorate!
This will discuss the role of brca2 and atm in zebrafish, and how this can be used for scientific research in humans.
