Next generation sequencing in molecular genetics for hereditary breast cancer, an emerging new strategy Ghent University
Germline BRCA1&2 mutations do not explain a large proportion of the families with hereditary breast cancer. This bilateral research project aims to gain insight in the role of ATM, BRIP1, CHEK2 and PALB2 mutations in Flemish and Québec breast cancer families using the next generation sequencing (NGS) technology. The expertise of both research groups in complementary: the Flemish group will be strongly involved in the development of an ...

Varieties of Causation in Genetics Ghent University
Classical genetics, molecular genetics and population genetics are the main subdomains of genetics. Each of these subdomains contains many causal claims. These claims belong to different types: classical genetics makes claims about (among others) the effect of genotypes on phenotypes; molecular genetics makes claims about (among others) how the genetic code determines protein synthesis; and population genetics makes claims about (among ...
