Clinical Interpretation of Variants from Next - Generation Sequencing
Friday 20th May 2016
Event immediately prior to the ESHG meeting
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies already have demonstrated clinical utility in many areas of medicine and promise to dramatically expand new and existing aspects of genetic research in disease diagnosis, risk and treatment. This meeting will explore multiple aspects of the clinical use of NGS, including whole exome and genome studies in inherited disorders, genomic analysis of somatic tissues, and issues of interpretation and standards of genetic variation for clinical use.
