The MUTAFRAME project by the ULB/VUB IB2 Research center has been funded through the icity.brussels program. The project aims to predict the effect of a DNA molecular mutation on a protein and an organism, and then translate and visualize these predictions to reveal the molecular reasons behind disease to non-experts

Principal investigators

  • Marianne Rooman, VUB
  • Wim Vranken, VUB

When a genomic research project ends, more often than not results are dispersed or under-utilized, or sometimes they just disappear upon project’s completion.

 

Objective

To develop a software suite in order to interconnect a number of different and currently unconnected bio-informatics tools from VUB and ULB. The objective is to identify possible molecular causes for genetic diseases.
