Southern California Regional Cytogenetics & Molecular Genetics Meeting Proves to be Big Success

The Southern California Regional Cytogenetics & Molecular Genetics Meeting last week was a big success. Some of the biggest names in the space attended and were able to provide feedback on the unique cases that were presented, what tools seem to work best, and how they would approach the issue.

BeCreative's 5th Annual New Technologies in Cytogenetics & Clinical Application Conference

Dr. Soheil Shams was in invited to speak in Bejing, China last week at BeCreative's 5th Annual New Technologies in Cytogenetics & Clinical Application Meeting.

ASHG 2018 Wrap-up

Back from another exciting ASHG conference. It was the highest attendance rate to date and the weather was predictably beautiful in San Diego!

Clinical Genome Data Analysis Workshop in China

To educate the community and encourage sharing of experiences and knowledge within the genetic testing labs, Be Creative recently hosted a workshop on clinical data analysis and interpretation using NxClinical.

OMIM data in NxClinical

OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man) is a comprehensive database consisting of human genes and genetic phenotypes associated with Mendelian disorders. The database is used by genetic labs to assist in interpretation. It is maintained by Johns Hopkins University and is available freely via the online GUI for personal, educational, or research use but other uses, usage by certain types of organizations, as well as downloading or incorporating with products does carry licensing fees.

BioDiscovery goes down under for the HGSA 2018 Conference

We recently attended the HGSA conference in Sydney a couple weeks ago and had the opportunity to experience some of the excitement around genomics in Australia.

Did you catch the PerkinElmer Genomics' webinar on their new CNGnome test using NxClinical for analysis & interpretation?

Using a combination of genomic sequencing technologies and bioinformatic tools, PerkinElmer Genomics is paving the way to replace traditional microarray analyses for constitutional genomics with NGS. Dr. Alka Chaubey, PerkinElmer Genomics, presented development and validation of the new CNGnome™ Test and comparison to traditional CMA. Dr. Chaubey also discusses how NxClinical was selected for use with their new assay and shows how the software was invaluable in the interpretation process.

Significant Cost Savings with Single NGS Test vs. Other Strategies

At the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meeting last month, Dr. Nathan Pennell, Director of the Lung Cancer Medical Oncology Program at the Cleveland Clinic, and his colleagues presented cost analysis in a model with different types of genetics testing in metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (mNSCLC). The team showed that upfront NGS leads to significant cost savings vs. sequential single-gene testing modalities.
