Researcher

Geert Vandeweyer

  • Research interest:Analysis of genomic (re)sequencing data in the context of medical genetics. This comprises analysis of raw data, variant annotation and interpretation, building automated analysis pipelines and user-friendly web-tools. My research focus is both identification of genetics defects, and functional follow-up. We use human embryonic stem cells, in which we introduce relevant mutations. My main topics are related to cognitive genetics and oncology.
