Research interests include the molecular basis of congenital malformations and their implications in understanding developmental processes. This essentially takes us from the Phenome to the Genome. Current projects focus on disesae gene identification by linkage mapping, and by microarray. In collaboration with bioinformaticians at Nijmegen University, new approaches to the classification of phenotypes and their application to candidate gene identification are developed.
