Translating Next-Generation Sequencing into the Clinical Diagnostic ArenaKarl V. Voelkerding, MD Medical Director, Advanced Technologies, ARUP LaboratoriesX-GEN Congress, March 2010
Utilizing next-generation sequencing for clinical diagnostic purposes poses unique challenges with technological complexity around both wet bench and data analysis. At the March X-GEN Congress, Karl Voelkerding reviewed different approaches for streamlining technical processes and bioinformatic analyses to facilitate technology adoption in the clinic, including using next-generation sequencing for targeted resequencing of multiple genes which, when mutated, share common clinical features.
Here are the slides that accompanied his presentation:
