Banner Euretina 2022

DBGen has been in the EURETINA Congress 2022, which was held this year in Hamburg. This congress gathers the last advances in research in the area of visual pathologies. Dr. Rebeca Valero presented two complex cases which were diagnosed in DBGen by a combination of next generation sequencing techniques. The abstract of this work, «NGS technologies […]

DBGen fourth anniversary and summary of the year

Advances in genetic diagnosis This year, DBGen has expanded its genetic diagnostic services by presenting 3 new panels and incorporating state-of-the-art massive sequencing methodologies (complete genome sequencing). Three new panels: Panel of Dysgenesis and Dystrophies of the Anterior Segment (136 genes): indicated for the diagnosis of anomalies of the anterior part of the eye (from the […]

DBGen awarded an EASI-Genomics grant for innovative long-read sequencing of inherited retinal dystrophies

The Transnational Access Committee of the European Advanced infraStructure for Innovative Genomics (EASI-Genomics) has selected the project PID15251 submitted by DBGen Ocular Genomics in the third call for projects of this initiative. DBGen’s proposal has successfully passed the scientific and technical evaluation steps of this highly competitive call. EASI-Genomics is an initiative, funded with 10 million euros by the […]

DBGen’s genetic diagnosis of hereditary eye diseases tops the 1,000 patients figure

We are glad to announce that early this year DBGen Ocular Genomics has achieved more than 1,000 genetic diagnoses of hereditary visual disorders. The genetic diagnosis of hereditary eye diseases is not without a high degree of complexity. Over 270 genes associated with inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) and more than 500 genes associated with visual […]

DBGen second anniversary and summary of the year

DBGen Ocular Genomics is a spin-off of the University of Barcelona specialized in the genetic diagnosis of hereditary eye disorders. It was founded in January 2018 by Roser Gonzàlez-Duarte and Gemma Marfany, both senior scientists focussed in human molecular genetics, particularly in the genetic basis of ocular disorders. DBGen Ocular Genomics aims to provide an […]

DBGen presents a research optimizing the genetic diagnosis of color vision deficiency

DBGen is committed to the quality of genetic diagnosis and its major goal since the beginning of the company is to remain at the forefront of innovation, prioritize resolution of difficult cases, and optimize methodologies that increase the diagnostic yield of inherited ocular diseases. These objectives are clearly attainable due to the high expertise in […]

DBGen presented in the PAAO2019 its most relevant results in the genetic diagnosis of eye diseases in Latin American patients

Dr. Roser Gonzàlez Duarte, professor emeritus of genetics at the University of Barcelona and founder of DBGen, attended the XXXIV Pan-American Congress of Ophthalmology held in Cancun (Mexico) from May 25 to 28, 2019. She presented a paper within the session “Clinical and molecular approaches in hereditary ocular pathologies” coordinated by Dr. Cristina Villanueva, an […]

DBGen and the UB-CIBERER U-718 group present their current research in genetic diagnosis and animal models of inherited retinal dystrophies in ARVO 2019

Dr. Gemma Marfany (co-founder and scientific board member of DBGen) presented an oral communication in ARVO 2019 (held in Vancouver, 2-6 May) to show the most prominent results of the research that his group at the UB-CIBERER (U-718) and DBGEN are currently undertaking to study inherited retinal dystrophies. This work is focused on improved genetic […]

Professor Gemma Marfany has been awarded the distinction of the Council of Doctors and the Board of Trustees of the University of Barcelona for her contribution to scientific communication

LProfessor Gemma Marfany, co-founder and associate director of DBGen Ocular Genomics, has been honored with the Distinction of the Council of Doctors and the Board of Trustees of the University of Barcelona (UB) in its sixth edition.
