Genomics Reimagined

The field of genomics has evolved at a rapid pace, resulting in many growing pains for clinical laboratories trying to implement massively parallel sequencing-based testing. This presentation will discuss the issues that we have encountered in this area, and how we have modified our processes to address them.

Learning Objectives
  1. Explain massively parallel sequencing (MPS) and the role that it plays in clinical diagnostics
  2. List the problems commonly encountered by clinical laboratories during implementation of MPS-based testing
  3. Describe the steps that can be taken to streamline MPS clinical workflows
