Presenter: Colin C Pritchard, MD, PhD, University of Washington, Seattle, WA

 

Host: Benjamin Pinsky, MD, PhD, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, CA

 

Description:
Next-generation DNA sequencing technology is transforming clinical genetics, including for diagnosis of hereditary genetic conditions, and in tumor-based testing for precision cancer therapy. This new testing approach presents considerable challenges for pathology reporting. This presentation will review considerations related to pathologist reporting of next-generation sequencing results with a focus on germline cancer risk panels, tumor mutation hotspot panels, and comprehensive tumor sequencing panels.

Learning Objectives:
1.  Describe methods for predicting if a poorly-characterized genetic variant is benign or pathogenic.
2.  Explain how the quantity of DNA sequenced impacts the detection of incidental findings, and how this influences clinical reporting considerations
3.  List two ways that clinical reporting considerations are different between hereditary (germline) sequencing panels and tumor sequencing panels

Level of Instruction: Intermediate

Presenter: Monica J Basehore, PhD, FACMG, Greenwood Genetics Center, Greenwood, SC

 

Host: Matthew Hiemenz, MD, University of Pennsylvania Health System, Philadelphia, PA

 

Description:

This webinar will provide an overview of factors important in clinical NGS test development and validation guidelines for clinical NGS tests. The professional standards and guidelines for quality and compliance that have been developed to date will be discussed and aspects such as instrument validation, assay/test validation, quality management, proficiency testing, and the use of reference materials during routine testing will be emphasized.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Recognize the factors important in clinical NGS test development.
2. Review guidelines for optimizing and validating clinical NGS tests and platforms.
3. Prepare to implement a quality management program to ensure accurate NGS test results.

 

Level of Instruction: Basic
