VIB and UZ-KU Leuven join forces and bring state-of-the-art technology to Flanders
Date:11/6/2007

ze of a credit card which contains 1.6 million little holes in which sequence reactions are generated. Seven hours later, the DNA sequences are produced by the computer, thereby rendering a wealth of data. This technology has the advantage of producing large parts of sequences from the genomes that are to be recorded, which benefits not only the speed but also the accuracy of the information. In short, the larger the pieces of the puzzle, the quicker and more precise the image of the entire picture.

Determining sequences can now be done 100 times faster than the technologies which are currently being used. With the next version of the new technology, which should be available within a year, one experiment will yield yet another 10 times more sequence, so 1000 times more than now. Therefore, with the new technology, Flemish scientists will in one day be able to gather DNA data that would today take 3 years to compile. This is truly revolutionary!

Applications for VIB and UZ-K.U. Leuven

In order to make optimal use of these substantial investments, VIB and UZ-K.U.Leuven are mutually coordinating activities on both units. Both parties will exchange expertise and will make capacity available to one another. In addition, VIB and UZ-K.U.Leuven will be able to grant Flemish researchers from other centers access to this revolutionary technology via this platform.

The 454 sequencer will be embedded in the Genetic Service Facility of the VIB Department of Molecular Genetics, University of Antwerp under the direction of Christine Van Broeckhoven . New technology will be developed under the supervision of Jurgen Del-Favero, supporting basic research such as sequencing new, full genomes of interesting organisms (e.g. pathogenic organisms) and tracing DNA differences that cause illnesses. On top of that, there will be a large investment in translational research focusing on the development of more efficient and cheaper genetic diagnostic test
