Advances in Molecular Genetics have led to the detection of single genes that, when mutated, can cause diseases such as Wilson disease, autoimmune disease, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and several kinds of cancer. The identification of disease-association genes and their signalling target will facilitate a better understanding of their function, as it paves the way towards effective diagnostics, therapeutics and preventative measures. Department of Molecular Genetics uses genomic analysis of patient samples to study inherited diseases and eventually utilizes cells as disease models to understand how gene mutations affect function, and to find ways to ameliorate the clinical outcome. Molecular Genetics research group focuses to create an interdisciplinary and cross-institution community and currently represents research on a wide range of biological problems.
