Whole-Genome Analysis for the Diagnosis of Rare Inherited Diseases

Starting from April 2018, researchers of the Centrum of Human Genetics at the UZ Leuven began with the full-genome analysis of patients with rare diseases. By looking at the whole genome, researchers expect to discover the genetic causes that lead to disease such that patients with rare genetic conditions can receive a diagnosis. This project is supported by the Genomics Core Leuven, which provides the sequencing platform and the bioinformatics pipelines to analyze this large amount of data.
