Identification of genes responsible for micro/anophthalmia in human.
France (ANEMF) - University of Toulouse, Toulouse
INSERM-UPS UMR563, CHU de Toulouse, H
Pr A. HOVNANIAN

Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project with Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
What is the aim of the project? What kind of techniques and methods will be used?
In our projet, the main objectives are to identificate the responsible genes for micro/anophthalmia in human and to detect the different mutation in subject suffering the designed syndrome in order to validate candidate genes.
In this way, we will use several molecular biology techniques such as basic PCR, amplifications of DNA (RNA), mutations screening in amplicons by DHPLC (Denaturing High Performance Liquid Chromatography ) and sequencing.
We will evaluate the mutations in silico or, eventually, by functional testing if a method is currently available.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)?
1. preliminary readings on the topic
2. bibliographic presentation by the student and delineation of a workflow chart
3. courses and seminars of the department
4. guided readaction of a written report
