Bionano Webinar Series Registration: Applications of Bionano Next-Generation Mapping (NGM) Method to Cancer Patients–NGS is not Enough

Bionano Genomics Webinar Vanessa HayesIn this webinar, Professor Vanessa Hayes of the Garvan Institute of Medical Research reports the first complete tumor-normal map from a primary prostate cancer. Her team identified 85 large somatic deletion and insertion rearrangements, of which half directly impact genes or gene regions. However, only one-tenth of these large structural variations were detectable using high-coverage, short-read NGS and automated five-tooled bioinformatic analyses. This webinar will highlight how Bionano NGM closes the gap on what is missing from NGS.
