Our seminar, “Writing the Future of Human Genetics with Twist Bioscience” is bringing together three human genetics experts elucidating some of the most complex challenges in human genomics research.
From exome panels to targeted sequencing, Twist DNA tools are empowering the groundbreaking discoveries made in our speakers’ laboratories. Learn from real-world examples how scientists at Victorian Clinical Genetics Services (the first clinically accredited genomics lab in Australia), the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, and Genome Opinion, Inc. are advancing clinical genomics, breast cancer research, and cardiovascular disease research.
In this seminar, you will learn:
- How a clinical genomic testing lab overcame challenges as they transit from physically targeted panels to in-silico exome panels, and the benefits of using exome sequencing as a central platform for a wide range of clinical genomics applications in the lab
- How targeted methylation sequencing of the entire promoter regions of 13 HBC genes enables the studies of the role of inherited promoter hypermethylation and how it contributes to hereditary breast cancer
- How genetic testing and metabolic PRS were developed to predict Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD) incidence
