Department of Functional Genomics
Prof. dr. Matthijs Verhage

The main task of this project partner is (A) the functional analysis of genes expressed in the presynaptic nerve terminal (B) generation of dynamic models for the presynaptic gene network and (C) the collective testing of genes in such networks for association of variation with human brain traits such as cognition and several brain disorders. The department has an extensive track record in the functional analysis of synaptic transmission, human genetics of cognition and secretory vesicle trafficking using a wide variety of high-end methods.
