Whole Genome Imaging Solutions Seminar

November 11, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Join us to learn about accurate genome variation detection using the Bionano Saphyr Whole Genome Imaging System. Case studies will highlight data demonstrating high-sensitivity structural variant detection in cancer and genetic disorders using whole genome imaging as a complement to NGS, and provide guidance on experimental design and considerations.


9:00 – 9:20 am  Genome Imaging with Bionano Saphyr: Resolving Structural Variants Across the Genome to Power Your Next Discovery in Cancer & Human Genetics –Maggie Rougier-Chapman, VP of Marketing, Bionano Genomics

9:20 – 9:40 am  Probing Genetically Engineered Breast Cancers with Bionano Genomics – Gaorav Gupta, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor, UNC-CH Departments of Radiation Oncology & Biochemistry and Biophysics, UNC-Chapel Hill

9:40 – 10:00 am  Improving the Assembly of Genetically Diverse Mouse Genomes – Fernando Pardo Manuel de Villena, PhD, Chair, UNC-CH Department of Genetics

10:00 – 10:10 am  HTSF Saphyr Genome Imaging Services Overview – Piotr Mieczkowski, MSc, PhD, UNC-CH Research Associate Professor & Director of the High Throughput Genomic Sequencing Facility & Dr. Corbin Jones, PhD, UNC-CH Professor of Biology, Faculty Director of Genomic Technologies
