Cataracts are a clouding of the lens in the eye, defined as opacification of the normally transparent crystalline lens. It is very common in older people and mostly related to aging. Cataracts can occur in one or both eyes affecting vision, i.e. clouding in the lens results in blurred vision. Unilateral cataracts are usually isolated and sporadic whereas bilateral cataracts are often inherited and associated with other diseases.
Catecholamine-induced polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) is a pathological disorder triggered by intense physical exercise or acute emotional stress. These conditions could initiate abnormal heartbeat (ventricular tachycardia) which then leads to dizziness, syncope, and in worst cases sudden death due to cardiac arrest.
CentoWebinar - A journey to the future: Whole genome sequencing for the diagnosis of heterogeneous genetic disorders
Last year CENTOGENE announced its new sequencing facility for rare hereditary disorders, which uses Illumina’s HiSeq X® sequencer. Now, some months after our journey started, our CSO Prof. Peter Bauer will explain CENTOGENE’s experience using this groundbreaking next generation sequencing (NGS) technology for the clinical diagnosis, give some insights in whole genome sequencing and show interesting clinical cases.
