Bionano Announces Presentation of OGM Utility Across Cancer Genomics Research Applications at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting
- A sponsored session will feature Dr.
Ben Finlayfrom Sanford Burnham Prebys Institute, Dr. Marc Henri Sternfrom Institut Curie and Dr. Rashmi Kanagal-Shamannafrom MD Anderson Cancer Centerpresenting on the utility of optical genome mapping (OGM) across cancer therapy research and development applications
- Five scientific posters will illustrate the application of OGM in cancer research areas including hematological malignancies, homologous recombination deficiency (HRD), and cell manufacturing and bioprocessing quality control
As part of a sponsored session, three cancer genomics experts will share their latest research covering the utility of OGM in comprehensive genomic structural variation and homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) analysis of tumor biopsies. The presenters will also discuss their use of OGM for the identification of cancer biomarkers that may be utilized in personal therapy approaches and for drug screening in leukemia research samples. Dr. Ben Finlay of

“We are excited to participate in AACR’s annual meeting. We believe cancer is a disease of structural variation and that OGM and our software solutions have the potential to make an impact in the fight against cancer. The data that will be shared at the conference point to the continued expansion of OGM into clinical research applications for hematological malignancies and solid tumors and highlight our ongoing progress toward our goal of making OGM an essential tool in the arsenal of cancer researchers,” commented
