Hereditary NGS Clinical Summit Series: Build a Next-Gen Software Workflow for Germline Testing

Over the past two decades, huge advancements in sequencing technology have transformed our understanding of human genetics, leading to faster diagnoses, earlier prevention, and better treatments. But as more and more people have their genomes sequenced, outpacing our ability to analyze and interpret the generated data, we must embrace new tools, technologies, and strategies to realize the full value of genomic innovation.

Advance your lab’s germline testing capabilities by learning how to build a next-gen software workflow, as part of the Hereditary NGS Clinical Summit Series, a two-part, free-to-attend virtual event for variant scientists, bioinformaticians, clinical geneticists, and lab managers.

An expert panel of leading medical geneticists, variant scientists and bioinformaticians will discuss emerging scientific and clinical trends in germline NGS testing.

Attendees will gain:

Insight into how leading laboratories address bottlenecks in their NGS data pipelines
Tips on how to solve process inefficiencies of critical workflow components, including variant curation and interpreting rare or novel variants
An outlook on how germline NGS analysis and interpretation will change in the next 5 years and how to remain at the forefront of innovation
