Abstract
Date:  January 28, 2021
Time: 7:00am (PST),  10:00am (EST)
 
Many of the newly recognized clinically significant genetic markers in pediatric leukemias cannot be reliably detected by routine diagnostic assays; they remain cryptic by karyotype analysis and are typically not interrogated by FISH testing or by diagnostic next-generation sequencing panels.
 
In this webinar, Dr. Raca will present results of a pilot study in which Optical Genome Mapping (OGM) revealed clinically significant structural variants in pediatric leukemias, which were missed by comprehensive multi-modal clinical testing. She will also illustrate the application of OGM to study a rare structural abnormality of the PAX5 gene in pediatric B-lymphoblastic leukemia, which could not be accurately characterized by other molecular methods.
 
Learning Objectives
  • Outline the main advantages of OGM compared to conventional cytogenetics (karyotype analysis).
  • Summarize how application of OGM facilitates detection of rare clinically significant structural variants in pediatric leukemias
  • Describe how application of OGM facilitates detection and characterization of repeat expansions in constitutional disorders and tumor samples.
 
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
