DESCRIPTION:

Join us for an interactive course designed to bring you up to speed on the latest technologies in molecular pathology.  In the morning, we will take an exciting look at current molecular hot topics and an have up-to-date discussion on current issues regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and SARS-CoV-2 testing. 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 to clinical practice. These sessions will be supplemented by an immersive workshop where participants will break out into small groups to work through the various case studies.

 

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 wants background in molecular pathology.
