Translating Next-Gen Sequencing from the Lab to the Clinic: Challenges and Solutions

April 11, 2014
Translating Next-Gen Sequencing from the Lab to the Clinic: Challenges and Solutions
Elaine R. Mardis, Ph.D. is one of the speakers.

The confluence of next-generation sequencing technologies, computational analysis of the data, and the use of targeted therapy in cancer care raises a “perfect storm” for revolutionizing the clinic. Sequencing experts, bioinformaticists, and clinicians agree that the challenges of translating the vast amounts of data from next-generation sequencing into a resource that can be easily and effectively incorporated into clinical and research programs are significant.

In this webinar, our presenters will cover several approaches aimed at streamlining the application of genomics data to clinical and personalized medicine. David Smith of the Mayo Clinic will describe analytical/informatics challenges, focusing on the Clinic’s approaches to presenting data generated from small gene panel, whole exome, whole genome, or whole transcriptome sequencing into a digestible form for clinicians.
