    BIOGRAPHY

Abstract

Operational barriers like complicated workflows and long turnaround times have hindered broad adoption of next-generation sequencing (NGS) in clinical oncology research. The new Ion Torrent Genexus System promises to address many of the current limitations of NGS. During this presentation, Dr. Kojo Elenitoba-Johnson from the University of Pennsylvania will discuss his early experience with the new Ion Torrent Genexus Sequencer and how the workflow could potentially simplify and speed up NGS-based oncologic testing in his laboratory. This will include preliminary studies evaluating the ease of use of the Genexus System as a sample-to-result platform for the identification of somatic variants in cancer, as well as determining performance characteristics of the system compared to the Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine (PGM).  

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will become familiar with basic aspects of the user experience with the Genexus system

2. Participants will learn about preliminary studies using a targeted panel and the Genexus system for the detection of somatic variants in cancer
