Join in on August 7, 2018 at 1:00 pm EST to hear about Mate Pair Sequencing: Next-Generation Structural Variation Detection, presented by Dr. Ross Rowsey.
How to Join:
If you have participated in the AGT webinars in the past, be aware that there have been some changes to the process. There is no pre-registration form.
To join the webinar go to, https://join.freeconferencecall.com/agtinfonow.
You will be asked to enter your email address and name. Make sure you enter this correctly as it will be used for evaluation distribution. Upon completion of the webinar, you will be sent an evaluation for completion. You will be able to add in the names of others that viewed the webinar with you. However, only current AGT members will be provided CEU certificates. If you are not an AGT member, you are welcome to view the webinar but you will not receive a CEU certificate. The recorded webinars will be made available in the AGT website store at a later date. Non-members may purchase and complete the quiz at a cost of $20 for CEU credit.
Mate Pair Sequencing: Next-Generation Structural Variation Detection, presented by Dr. Ross Rowsey
Next Generation Sequencing has expanded our ability to understand structural rearrangements at the molecular level. While whole genome sequencing has the ability to detect rearrangements, a high coverage is required throughout the genome to detect breakpoints. Mate Pair Sequencing (MPSeq) provides a unique chemistry approach to reduce the depth of coverage necessary and still detect and characterize structural variants. This technology can be used to readily identify gene partners in structural rearrangements, potentially providing further diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic implications beyond traditional cytogenetic and molecular techniques.
