The Cognitive Genetics Research Group, is part of the Medical Genetics research cluster of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences of the University of Antwerp. The group's mission is to identify genetic causes of cognitive disorders and to study the molecular defects in order to develop rational therapy. The in-house developed platform VariantDB, led by Geert Vandeweyer, provides dynamic annotation and filtering strategies in a collaborative setting for next generation sequencing data. Being actively used by researchers worldwide, it has proven itself as a value asset in daily practice. VariantDB has been incorporated into the WiNGs platform developed by members of Yves Moreau’s team in Leuven.
