About this Event

You're Invited! Please join us at ESHG for our satellite workshop. Space is limited, so please kindly register to attend the event or request a separate 1:1 meeting.

ESHG Workshop

Sunday 16 June, 7:15 PM – 8:45 PM.

Next-Generation Cytogenetics: High-Throughput Mapping of Structural Variation in Cancer and Genetic Disease

The Bionano Saphyr platform for whole genome mapping offers an extremely long-read technology, providing unmatched sensitivity to detect structural variation, genome-wide, at low cost. Our de novo maps can resolve complex repetitive regions, identify Copy Number Variations, and elucidate genome-wide structural variation like balanced/unbalanced translocations, inversions, and indels with high sensitivity and precision.

Hear from two members of world-leading institutions on their use of Bionano optical mapping for diagnosis of leukemias and reproductive and developmental disorders, and their ongoing projects exploring the use of this technology to replace a combination of classical cytogenetic approaches such as karyotyping, FISH and Chromosomal Microarray Analysis (CMA).

Talks will include:
