Clinical Whole Genome Sequencing: a rising Star

Prof. Peter Bauer, Chief Scientific Officer, CENTOGENE GmbH, Rostock, Germany

With the adoption of WGS into clinical heath care, CENTOGENE has built bioinformatics and medical solutions, to ensure fast and robust processes. Based on an analysis of more than 1,000 in-house cases, Prof. Bauer will share strategies to optimize diagnostic utility and yield of clinical WGS.

A pediatricians experience with Whole Genome Sequencing

Prof. Yasemin Alanay, Department of Pediatrics, Acibadem Maslak Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey

Explaining clinical pictures in pediatric patients with complex phenotypes can be a challenge. State-of-the art diagnostic tools such as WGS help you uncovering the unknown. CENTOGENE’s long-term partner Prof. Alanay will present illustrative examples from a series of patients seen at a large pediatric department in Turkey.

Classification, Curation, Re-Classification: we Care

Dr. Allison Beaty Faber, Senior Scientist Digital Products, CENTOGENE GmbH, Rostock, Germany

The steady increase in genetic knowledge makes variant classification remain a highly dynamic process. CENTOGENE utilizes its proprietary database CentoMD® to document and keep track of all relevant information. Dr. Beaty Faber will outline how this highly curated data is used for standardized variant re-classification and, thereby, for a sustained diagnostic service for patients and their clinicians.
