The primary objective of our centre is to translate recent huge advances in the basic understanding of the pathogenesis of coeliac disease to the clinic – to improve disease diagnostics, to implement novel treatments and to identify new therapeutic targets for this common disease.
The secondary objective is to become a clinical research site at the international forefront which will provide optimal patient care and which will be a unique training site for basic scientists and clinicians.
Fine mapping of the wheat genome- one step closer to gluten free wheat
Sep. 6, 2018 7:56 AM
The bread wheat genome is very complex because it originates from 3 different strains. It has 21 chromosomes which is 3 times as many as humans. Because of this it has been challenging to pinpoint in detail where genes that code different proteins are. Through a massive, international collaborative effort, the entire genome of bread wheat has now been mapped. This makes it possible to in the future develop wheat strains that lack certain proteins, including the gluten proteins that are harmful for celiac disease patients.
