Fusion genes: what , why and how

Speaker

Abstract

Fusion genes are hybrid genes formed by the fusion of two separate genes. Translocation, interstitial deletion and chromosomal inversions are some of the genetic events that can lead to the formation of fusion genes.

The occurrence of fusion genes and its implications in cancer have already been known, but the emergence of NGS technology – especially RNA sequencing – offers the potential to detect novel gene fusions.

You can learn more about fusion genes and applying NGS to detect them at our upcoming webinar, presented by Raed Samara, Ph.D., QIAGEN’s Global Product Manager for NGS technologies.

In this webinar, Dr. Raed Samara will cover:
1. Fusion genes: what they are and a historical perspective
2. Fusion gene detection: the current status
3. RNA sequencing vs. digital RNA sequencing
4. How to detect and accurately quantify novel fusion genes in your sample
