Project description

In this project we aim to study the involvement of miRNAs in the development and progression of neuroblastoma. By using next generation sequencing technology to selectively resequence these small non coding genens in a large set of neuroblastoma tumours we will get an in depth view of the mutations possibly occurring in neuroblastoma. This will enhance our insight in this enigmatic disease.
