Bioinformatics protocols exploiting text mining and function prediction algorithms to reveal pain mediating gene candidates
The aim of this project is to reveal novel insights into the molecular machinery underlying neuropathic pain. This will be achieved by means of combining existing knowledge of pain processing at the molecular level with other useful forms of biological data to make p
In vivo gene knock-down and knock-out in spinal cord and DRG
The development and maintenance of chronic pain is a very complex process that most likely involves very local and specific changes in receptors and molecules that otherwise have a very broad distribution and function.

To study these changes, it is therefore
