Cardiac Genetics

The Cardiac Genetics research group is highly involved in research in the field of genetic causes of cardiac arrhythmia. 

Our main project uses Next Generation Sequencing to perform genetic screening of approximately 1000 atrial fibrillation patients with early onset of lone atrial fibrillation (lone AF) and 25 families with an accumulation of atrial fibrillation (AF), in order to identify genetic variations as a cause of AF. The 25 families has already been exome Sequencing and we are currently analyzing the huge amount data.
