BIOMICs Group analyzes Basque diaspora DNA
Date:12/28/2010

The BIOMICs Group, based at the Lucio Lascaray building in the lava/Araba campus of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), is specially known for overseeing the SGIker DNA Bank, not only undertaking this task, but also feeding data into the gene research bank and making good use of it for their own lines of research. Led by Doctor Marian Martnez de Pancorbo, BIOMICs has numerous research specialists in diverse areas of genetics (neurodegenerative, cancer, forensic, and so on), and works jointly with Basque hospitals and universities as well as with centres worldwide.

The research activity of BIOMICs frequently has international repercussion such as, for example, the line involving Alzheimer's disease and published in Nature Genetics. "We studied the stage prior to Alzheimer. If we manage to detect genes that can indicate to us running a greater risk, palliative therapies can be tried out", explained Marian M. de Pancorbo. Another line of research on breast cancer and undertaken by researcher Ms Naiara Bediaga, was published in the prestigious Breast Cancer Research journal: "If one looks at the DNA of a tumour and that of healthy tissue, the sequence of bases is the same. But when one looks inside the tumour, it can be seen that the DNA bases of the tumour also have methyl groups and which modify its DNA". This is the epigenome, and could be the key for the even earlier detection of cancer, and so this line of research is open.

Return to the origins

Cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinson, prionopathy (fatal familiar insomnia), archaeogenetics, and so on. The areas encompassed are very diverse but, curiously, one of the strongest lines of the research in recent times involves a traditional one a return to the origins of the group: the genetics of human populations and evolution.

Today there are methods for following the lineage of a population and this is what has been proposed with the Basque lineage. Gi
