    TIME: 08:00am PDT, 11:00am EDT

    As we learn more about the implications of genetic variation in 21st century medicine, the utilization of genotyping as a molecular tool both in the research and clinical setting is as important and popular as ever. This presentation will exemplify the power and precision of the Applied Biosystems™ Axiom™ genotyping platform in several settings. Examples will include the use of Applied Biosystems™ Axiom™ Genotyping Arrays in the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Million Veteran Program (MVP), the use of the Applied Biosystems™ Axiom™ Precision Medicine Research Array, the use of the Applied Biosystems™ PharmacoScan Solution for pharmacogenetics, as well as using a unique custom array for potential dementia risk assessment. The talk will be presented from the perspective of a global service provider.

    In this webinar, Dr. Mark Bouzyk will:

    • Demonstrate the flexibility and accuracy of the Axiom Genotyping platform and how it is particularly suitable for large-scale genomic studies
    • Explain how the recently developed Axiom Precision Medicine Research Array can be used in a wide variety of disease and therapeutic research areas
    • Discuss new arrays including the PharmacoScan Solution for pharmacogenomics research and a custom Axiom array for dementia, particularly Alzheimer’s disease, and the usefulness of these arrays in clinical research trials for stratifying populations
