Tracking the immune system with bioinformatic precision

Mainz, April – The 32nd Annual Meeting of the Rheumatology Working Group (ARRP) and the cooperative Rheumazentrum Rheinland-Pfalz e.V. was held in Bad Kreuznach from March 31 to April 1, 2017, to discuss the various aspects and current topics of rheumatology with a focus on interdisciplinary exchange!

Sebastian Boegel, PhD, presented a poster of his work at TRON during the 32nd annual meeting. In particular, he spoke about the concept of precision medicine and the central role of Next Generation Sequencing and bioinformatic evaluation for the development of diagnostic, prevention and treatment strategies, taking into account the individual molecular variability of a patient. With his poster “Mit bioinformatischer Präzision dem Immunsystem auf der Spur “, he mainly focused on the novel immunologically relevant applications of these technologies, since these are also of interest to rheumatologists.
