Molecular Genetics Group

Research group of Prof. Shomi Bhattacharya in London, United Kingdom.

Methodology

  • Microsatellite markers and 10-1 Million SNP chip analysis for linkage and association studies,
  • bioinformatics based positional cloning approach for identification of disease genes
  • functional genomic characterisation of the mutant gene using cellular and molecular biology based procedures
  • DNA sequencing
  • site directed mutagenesis
  • cell transfection
  • immunolocalisation
  • histochemical techniques and Western blotting

Cooperations

Cooperation 1:
Bernd Wissinger

Cooperation 2:
Eberhart Zrenner

Cooperation 3:
Jose Sahel

Cooperation 4:
Marius Ueffing

Cooperation 5:
Anand Swaroop

Current Research Projects

Project 1:
Animal model and functional characterisation of PRPF31

Project 2:
Molecular basis of partial penetrance associated with PRPF31 mutations

Project 3:
Identification and characterisation of a major gene for autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa

Project 4:
