Ophthalmogenetics

Research Group of Prof. Dr. Frans Cremers in Nijmegen, Netherlands.

The ophthalmogenetic research group aims to identify the majority of causal genes for retinal dystrophies, to elucidate their cellular function, and to facilitate routine molecular diagnostics and therapy. To achieve this aim, we study the molecular causes of cone (rod) dystrophies, Leber congenital amaurosis, macular dystrophy, and retinitis pigmentosa. We also study a spectrum of vitreoretinopathies, such as familial exudative vitreoretinopathy, Wagner disease, and rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.

In the Department of Human Genetics, we collaborate with drs. H. Kremer and R. Roepman, who lead workgroups in the deaf-blindness and blindness functional genomics areas.

Methodology

  • Homozygosity mapping using whole-genome SNP arrays
  • Quantitative RT-PCR
  • Genetic linkage studies
