Welcome to the Center for Medical Genetics
The Center for Medical Genetics Ghent has three main objectives: medical services, research and education. We provide our expertise for the diagnosis and care of patients with hereditary diseases.
We strive for a better understanding of these hereditary diseases and translate this knowledge in education in a variety of disciplines.

Quality control of digital PCR assays and platforms

16 August 2017

Digital polymerase chain reaction (digital PCR, dPCR) is a direct nucleic acid quantification method, thus requiring no standard curves unlike quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR). Nevertheless, evaluation of the linear dynamic range, accuracy, and precision of an assay or platform is recommended, as there are several potential causes of important non-linearity, bias, and imprecision. Ignoring the...

Long Noncoding RNA Expression Profiling in Normal B-Cell Subsets and Hodgkin Lymphoma Reveals Hodgkin and Reed-Sternberg Cell-Specific Long Noncoding RNAs.

09 June 2017

AbstractHodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a malignancy of germinal center (GC) B-cell origin. To explore the role of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in HL, we studied lncRNA expression patterns in normal B-cell subsets, HL cell lines, and tissues. Naive and memory B cells showed a highly similar lncRNA expression pattern, distinct from GC-B cells. Significant differential expression bet...
