Um die Ecke gedacht: molekulargenetische Diagnose mit Transkriptomanalyse

  • Laura KremerEmail author
Wissenschaft Molekulare Diagnostik


Transcriptome analysis reveals functional effects of coding as well as non-coding variants on RNA abundance and sequence and can hence ease the identification of pathogenic variants in patients with genetic disorders.
