Emerging role of liquid biopsies and NGS for biomarker discovery

Speaker

Abstract

Precision medicine promises a more effective approach to disease treatment and management. It is based on analyzing mutations of disease samples to unlock mechanisms of disease development and progression, and resistance to effective therapies. Recent advances in NGS have made it the ideal approach for the comprehensive analysis of the mutational landscape of samples. Specifically, the ability to enrich certain genomic targets known, or suspected, to harbor driver mutations prior to NGS is allowing researchers to achieve very deep levels of sequencing coverage, levels that cannot be achieved by either WGA or WES, thereby increasing the sensitivity of NGS assays. The ability to enrich genomic targets has also facilitated the use of liquid biopsies for the discovery of mutations that contribute to drug resistance. Several challenges remain though, mainly the specificity and uniformity of target enrichment approaches, the amount of required DNA, and the turnaround time needed to go from sample to insight. Attend this seminar to learn what solutions QIAGEN scientists have developed to overcome these challenges and how these solutions can be used to analyze mutations in a wide range of samples such as FFPE, cfDNA, and CTCs, thereby enabling researchers to use solid and liquid biopsies for disease management and, ultimately, precision medicine.
