Delivering a NexGen Sequencing Educational Experience to Clinical Lab Science Programs

From the 2022 Joint Annual Meeting (recorded 6/28/2022)
Presented by Irene Newsham, PhD, MB(ASCP) and Vibhuti Srivastava, PhD

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has moved from an expensive niche technique to standard technology, increasing demand for newly graduated technologists with direct NGS experience. We will share our experience with delivering an NGS and bioinformatics training experience in our clinical lab science program.

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

  • Summarize the steps required to run a NGS lab
  • identify different mechanisms for scheduling and delivering a NGS lab experience
  • develop first level run data analysis and downstream bioinformatic analysis for the NGS lab
