Oversubscribed NGS and aCGH workshop now available online

OGT’s ASHG 2013 workshop highlights the need for comprehensive genomic analysis

Molecular Array WorkshopOxford Gene Technology (OGT), provider of innovative genetics research and biomarker solutions to advance molecular medicine, has made a recording of its recent American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) workshop available to watch online. The oversubscribed workshop, titled “Complementing next generation sequencing experiments with high-resolution copy number variation detection”, was recorded at the meeting in Boston (US) on the 25th of October 2013.

Over 120 attendees heard Professor Madhuri Hegde, Professor of Human Genetics at Emory University School of Medicine and OGT’s Chief Executive, Dr Mike Evans discuss the need for comprehensive and complementary genomic testing for reliable results. The workshop described how OGT’s CytoSure Molecular Testing Arrays are being used alongside next generation sequencing (NGS) to deliver accurate detection of point mutations and single exon copy number aberrations in a clinical genetics research laboratory. Professor Hegde presented numerous compelling case studies in which the comparative genomic hybridisation arrays accurately identified mutations that were missed by NGS alone.

OGT has worked in close collaboration with Emory Genetics Laboratory to develop arrays for use in the detection of complex disorders, which are available as part of OGT’s CytoSure range of products.
