Project description

The aim of the BeMGI project is to:

(i) understand the biology of disease by exploiting the most advanced genomic tools.

(ii) predict clinical outcome from genomic information and fulfil a pilot role towards concerted integration of genomic information in clinical care in Belgium.

(iii) prepare the next generation of genomics researchers, informing medical practitioners, and conducting public outreach.
