10.04.2019Inherited diseases – from symptoms to diagnosis in human genetics

Dr. Wanda M. Gerding, Department of Human Genetics, Faculty of Medicine, Ruhr-University Bochum

Some brain diseases – such as Huntington’s disease – are codified in the patient’s genome. How do you detect these genetic diseases? The Diagnostic Laboratory of the Department of Human Genetics at the Ruhr University Bochum carries out analyses on the most diverse genetic diseases. In her lecture, Dr Wanda Gerding takes a “virtual tour” through the lab and shows different methods of analysis and the daily practice in human genetics (not just) for brain diseases.
