scientific activities

Prisopgave, Århus University 1972: Silver Medal, topic: Comparison and use of the new band differentiating techniques for human chromosomes. p. 1-165.

Invited speaker Toronto, Oxford, London, Verona. Vice Chairman: Human Gene Mapping 9 (chromosome 17-19) in Paris 1987.

Development of laboratory for mapping the human genome: Including collection of personal data and blood samples. Establishment of methods for antibody production, synthesis of ampholine, separation, storage, cultivation, transformation, thawing and typing of genetic polymorphisms in enzymes, proteins, chromosomes, DNA (RFLP and PCR), senses and various external traits. Programming in UNIX-Solaris, VAX-VMS, DOS, FORTRAN, DBASE4. Linkage analysis with the programs LIPED, SIMLINK, LINKAGE, EXCLUDE,
AUTOLIPED and drawprograms CYRILLIC and MEGABASE. Initiated establishment of a cDNA library from lenses.

Explored 22 diseases with the primary purpose of chromosomal localization of gene defects, including more than 10 diseases localized for the first time in our laboratory. Examined 80 "classical" marker systems, including 20 localized for the first time through linkage to another marker.
