Consistency in mutations
Unlike many diseases, cancer is often caused by mutations of the cell that are spontaneous instead of genetic. By examining gene networks, professor Lude Franke is aiming to find out whether there is a unifying principle behind this difference in types of mutations. As a professor of Functional Genomics at the University of Groningen and the University Medical Centre Groningen, Franke has been working on analyzing data on the genetics of complex and autoimmune diseases. By applying computational algorithms to functional genomics datasets he manages to create new insights by finding innovative and creative angles to look at existing data.
