Bionano Genomics Announces Extensive Lineup of Content at Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) Annual Meeting Featuring OGM Utility Across Broad Range of Research Applications
- Dr. Alka Chaubey, chief medical officer at Bionano, Dr. Nikhil Sahajpal, Greenwood Genetic Center, Dr.
Rashmi Kanagal-Shamanna, MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Dr. Adam Smith, University Health Networkwill host a sponsored vendor presentation on studies that include multiple types of hematological malignancies, and highlight the benefits of combining optical genome mapping (OGM) with next generation sequencing (NGS) to maximize actionable results
- A scientific presentation featuring
Dr. Chaubey, Dr. Kanagal-Shamanna, Dr. Ravindra Kolhe, Augusta University, and Dr. Christopher Lum, Queens Medical Centerwill cover methodologies for homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) assessment, including NGS, microarray and OGM, as well as bioinformatics approaches for analysis of data across solid tumors and hematological malignancies
- A plenary session will feature
Dr. Smithdelivering a presentation on the implementation of long-read sequencing (LRS) and OGM for cytogenetic research, and will be immediately followed by a panel discussion on the use of new tools, including OGM, in next generation cytogenomics, featuring Dr. Smith, Dr. Eric Duncavage, Washington University School of Medicine, Dr. Yassmine Akkari, Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Dr. Robert Hasserjian, Massachusetts General Hospital
- Eleven scientific posters featuring results from OGM applications in prenatal and postnatal analysis, solid tumor, and hematological malignancy research will be presented at the conference
