Course Description:

From Genomics to Cancer: Methods and Approaches for Analyzing and Interpreting DNA and RNA Next-Generation Sequencing Data 

This course introduces the principles and various approaches of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and demonstrates how NGS data can be used to detect single nucleotide variation (SNV) and indels, measure expression, evaluate copy number variation (CNV), distinguish between germline and somatic abnormalities, then interpret the data in a clinical setting and make recommendation for patients management and therapeutic approaches.

 The course also introduces key concepts in computing, software and algorithms that can be used for analyzing data for reaching clinical decisions. 


Objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:

1. Interpret test results from solid and hematologic cancers utilizing next-generation sequencing; 

2. Utilize genomic interpretation software to determine genomic alterations impacting diagnosis, prognosis and response to therapy.


Target Audience:

Pathologists, Hematologists, Oncologists, Surgical Oncologists and Pathology Fellows
