Researcher

Wim Vanden Berghe

  • Research interest  (University of Antwerp):Pyrosequencing is a fast, simple and quantitative method for analysis of CpG methylation, mutation analysis, SNP analysis in multiple sites in a single assay and eliminates the reliance on restriction sites, large quantities of DNA, gels, dyes and a mandatory separation step.
  • Keywords  (University of Antwerp):EPIGENETICS, MUTATION ANALYSIS, SNP ANALYSIS AND DETECTION, Chemical engineering and applied chemistry
  • Disciplines  (Ghent University):Biophysics, Molecular and cell biology, Medical biochemistry and metabolism, Laboratory medicine, Microbiology, Systems biology, Plant biology, Biochemistry and metabolism, Medicinal and biomolecular chemistry
  • Disciplines  (University of Antwerp):Systems biology
  • Research techniques  (University of Antwerp):Pyrosequencing is performed on Pyromark Q24 equipment (Qiagen)
  • Users of research expertise  (University of Antwerp):Epigenetic research:Quantitative assays for specific DNA methylation markersQuantitative assays on global DNA methylation markers (LINE1, LUMA)Genetic researchQualitative/quantiative assays for mutation analysisQualitative/quantiative assays for SNP analysis
