Advanced genomic assays have been used in the research setting to diagnose undiagnosed disease patients. Strategies that vastly reduce the cost of sequencing will enable broader reach to underinsured and underserved populations. Another impact will be vastly increasing data density and read depth with concomitant improvement in sensitivity and throughput. This symposium brings together leaders in clinical genomic implementation and advanced genome sequencing technologies to present their efforts to translate these methods to the clinical diagnostic laboratory setting.
The symposium will be held at the 2022 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics and is sponsored by the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics and the Undiagnosed Diseases Center at Baylor College of Medicine.
Location: Rm. 402AB, Los Angeles Convention Center
Lunch will be served from 11:15 - 11:30 a.m.
Talks begin at 11:45 a.m. and last until 12:45 p.m.
