Isolating Ultra-high Molecular Weight (UHMW) DNA for Genome-wide Structural Variant Analysis

Sponsored by: Bionano Genomics
Speakers

Abstract
DATE:  April 24, 2020
TIME:  8:00am PT, 11:00am ET, 5:00pm CET
 
Accurate analysis of structural variants begins with isolating ultra-high molecular weight DNA. Obtaining high-quality UHMW DNA can present a challenge since sample collection, preservation, the DNA isolation process and subsequent handling of isolated DNA can significantly affect its quality. 
 
In this webinar, Dr. Ben Clifford, Sr. Application Scientist at Bionano Genomics, will discuss tips and tricks for isolating high quality UHMW DNA - right from sample collection, preservation and gentle handling of isolated DNA to minimize shearing and fragmentation.
 
In addition, we will hear from Dr. Sven Bocklandt, Director of Scientific affairs at Bionano Genomics to walk us through genome imaging technology and workflow to demonstrate how it has been used successfully in studying structural variations in cancer and genetic diseases.
 
In this webinar, you can learn more about:
  • Understand sample selection and storage requirements of blood, cell, and tissue samples; for downstream ultra-high molecular weight DNA isolation
  • Learn how to detect novel genome-wide structural variants without any bias, using Bionano optical mapping with genome imaging
 
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
 
LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this webinar, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit once you have viewed the webinar in its entirety.
