2021 Get AMPed! Updates and Case Studies in Molecular Pathology

Presented by the AMP Training & Education Committee

Thursday, January 13, 2022 | 10:00am - 5:30pm (Eastern)

Location: VIRTUAL
 

This website will be updated as more information becomes available. Please be sure to check back for all the latest information.

DESCRIPTION:

Join us for an interactive course designed to provide updates on the latest technologies in molecular pathology. First, we will take an exciting look at current molecular hot topics. We will then review preanalytical variables that impact molecular testing, testing modalities for the assessment of genome structure, and the current and future application of genomic technologies and informatics in clinical practice. In addition, we will have an up-to-date discussion on the status of SARS-CoV-2 testing and the COVID-19 pandemic. These sessions will be followed by interactive presentations where participants work through the various case studies related to the topics discussed in the morning.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Discuss the current hot topics in molecular pathology.
  • Review the current state of SARS-CoV-2 testing.
  • Identify common preanalytical variables that impact molecular testing.
  • Evaluate methods of single nucleotide variant detection, copy number detection, and structural variant (fusions) detection by conventional and advanced genomic technologies.
  • Describe the role of bioinformatic algorithms on the analysis of NGS data, such as TMB assessments, copy number variants, and/or fusion detections.

 

TARGET AUDIENCE

Trainees (LGG and MGP), field application specialists, pathologists new to molecular or those who wants a refresher, molecular and cytogenetic technologists, and cytogeneticists who want additional background in molecular pathology.
