Solving the unsolved Rare Diseases
Patients with a rare disease generally go through a long and arduous process, sometimes lasting ten or fifteen years (also known as the rare disease odyssey), before finding a physician who knows what is wrong with them. Scientific advances can also take a long time, as it is difficult to find...

Promoting SINgle cell GEnomics to explore the ecology and evolution of hidden microeuKaryotes
Microbial eukariotes cover the widest phylogenetic diversity in the eukaryotic tree of life and are essential components of all Earth’s ecosystems. Paradoxically, they remain large unknown, hiding a wealth of genes and genomes that are key to understand the ecology and evolution of microbial...

Breast CAncer STratification - Understanding the determinants of risk and prognosis of molecular breast cancer subtypes. The aim of B-CAST is to identify women at moderate to high risk of breast cancer, the subtype of cancer that is most likely to develo
The B-CAST project (Breast CAncer STratification) is coordinated by the Netherlands Cancer Institute Antoni Van Leeuwenhoek and it will be conducted over five years (until September 2020). Breast tumours are heterogeneous, and result from the complex interplay of multiple lifestyle/environmental...

Dynamics of human genome architecture in stable and transient gene expression changes
The classical view of genomes as linear sequences has been replaced by a vision of nuclear organization that is both dynamic and complex, with chromosomes and genes non-randomly positioned in the nucleus. Process compartmentalization and spatial location of genes modulate the transcriptional output...
