  • Live webinar on Implication of NGS in Molecular Diagnosis of Cancer on 28 Sep

    Abstract:
    Genetic testing requires screening of the entire gene, which by conventional sequencing is time consuming and expensive. Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) based approaches increase the sensitivity of mutation detection, making it fast and cost-effective compared to the conventional tests performed in a reflex-testing mode. Strand NGS includes workflows with quality assessment and filter sections that do not require any manual intervention. Post-analytical workflows in Strand NGS allow users to execute sequence analysis with stringent filtering to eliminate false positive and low quality reads. This simplifies the analysis in large scale cohort settings, where every sample needs to be processed identically.

    In this webinar we will discuss the implications of next generation sequencing based tests in multi-gene testing. We will also show how NGS based tests help to identify copy number variations, split read analysis and breakpoint identification. Finally, we will show a brief glimpse of Indian cohort data, where NGS based tests have shown improved mutation detection. In this webinar, we will present clinical case studies in on Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer (HBOC) and Retinoblastoma patients to demonstrate how CNV analysis in Strand NGS enables researchers to detect and visualize copy number changes ranging from single exon to full gene.

    Date: 28 September 2016
    Session 1: 2:30 PM IST
    Session 2: 10:00 PM IST

      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
      by seqadmin




      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
      by seqadmin


      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
