Institute of Human Genetics

The focus of the research group of Bernhard Weber is on disease mechanisms in hereditary as well as multifactorial retinal degenerations

Methodology

  • Generation of mouse models – transgene, knock-in, knock-out
  • Genetic, biochemistry, cell biology, functional assays
