Considerations for the Implementation and Validation of Optical Genome Mapping for Routine Clinical Care

From the 2021 Joint Annual Meeting (recorded 6/28/2021)
Presented by Adam Smith, PhD, FCCMG

This presentation will focus on the practical tasks involved with the implementation of Optical Genome Mapping in the laboratory. Issues such as space, sample collection, data analysis will be discussed. In addition, data showing the applicability and cost feasibility will presented.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the types of structural variation observed when analyzing cancer samples.
  • Summarize the techniques used to identify structural variation including conventional techniques such as G-banded karyotyping and compare to Optical Genome Mapping.
  • Summarize the steps required to implement Optical Genome Mapping in the laboratory.
