PD Dr. Jens Bohne participates in RESIST research project A1.

My Research Interest in RESIST

Our research focus in RESIST is the identification and experimental validation of known and novel genetic variants causing severe respiratory syntycial virus (RSV) infections. My part is the analysis of non-coding variants identified during exome sequencing of patient samples. Bioinformatical analysis will be used as a guide to narrow down the most prominent and potential disease-influencing variants. In a second approach these variants should be cloned and analyzed experimentally. In the longterm this will provide new insights into the biology of RSV as well as defence mechanism of the host.
