Genetic Diversity Research Institute for Nature and Forest

The variation in DNA affects the ability of individuals, populations and species to adapt to a dynamic world. In addition, the genetic code is also an excellent source of information for identifying, detecting and detailing biodiversity of species that are difficult to identify.

The Genetic Diversity team works largely around these two themes:

(1) the use of genetic research to assess the status of species and populations. This ...

Forest Genetic Resources Research Institute for Nature and Forest

The research team Forest genetic resources focuses its research on the adaptability of trees and shrubs to a changing climate. Important themes include the genetic diversity and the sensitivity and tolerance to pests and diseases. Much attention is paid to the identification, characterization, conservation but also the valorisation of the many collections of trees and shrubs that INBO has built up over the years, with the major goal to ...

Laboratory for Genetic Epidemiology KU Leuven

Responsible

Laboratory of Genetic Epidemiology.

The research in the Laboratory for Genetic Epidemiology focuses on the clinical and genetic characterization of complex developmental disorders, in particular autism spectrum disorders. It concerns the search for new causes and the clinical validation of known genetic risk variants. In addition, in a joint research program with the Department of ESAT-PSI image and speech processing the ...

Genetic Diversity Research Institute for Nature and Forest

The genetic code, perhaps better known as DNA, determines all biological diversity on Earth. Variation in DNA affects the ability of populations and species to adapt in a dynamic world. The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) considers genetic diversity as the first of the three levels – genes, species and ecosystems – at which biodiversity must be preserved. Without genetic diversity, species become extinct and ecosystems collapse. The ...

Forestry Genetic Resources Research Institute for Nature and Forest

In research into the adaptability of trees and shrubs to a changing climate, genetic diversity and sensitivity and tolerance to diseases and pests are important topics. The research method used focuses on the study of phenological processes and growth dynamics. Considerable attention is also paid to cataloguing, classifying, preserving but also making effective use of the many collections of tree and shrub species that INBO has built up over ...

Medical genetics of obesity and skeletal disorders (MGENOS) University of Antwerp

Responsible
The general aim of the research is to identify genes that are relevant for two multifactorial conditions, osteoporosis and obesity, in order to understand the pathogenesis of these conditions and to reveal novel putative therapeutic targets.In order to obtain this, the specific aims of our work are:- identification of genes for monogenic conditions with an abnormal bone density- identification of genes involved in rat models with an increased ...

Centre for Medical Genetics Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Topic A : Identification of new mutations in hereditary diseases (W. Lissens, I. Liebaers), more in particular: - cystic fibrosis - iduronate sulphate deficiency - Beta-glucuronidase deficiency - anti thrombosis III deficiency Topic B : Preimplantation genetics/expression (Liebaers I, Lissens W.) - expression Beta-hexosaminidase in mouse and human embryo's - preimplantation diagnosis in couples at risk for cysticfibrosis (F508) or couples at ...

Medical Genetics UZBrussel

The research group Reproduction and Genetics (REGE) is part of the research cluster Reproduction Genetics and Regenerative Medicine. Its research focuses on different aspects of human genetics, reproduction, early development and stem cells

Historically, the group has been interested in metabolic diseases such as lysosomal storage diseases and this has led to the close collaboration of S. Seneca with the neuro-paediatricians (L. De ...
