About this workshop
The International Workshop on Cancer Genetic & Cytogenetic Diagnostics is a course focusing on all aspects of cancer (cyto)genetics in a diagnostic setting. Basic technical aspects such as conventional karyotyping, methods and principles in fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), micro-array genomic profiling, QPCR, gene sequencing and new technologies such as Optical Genome Mapping and Whole Genome sequencing will be presented. In addition to the various laboratory techniques, there will be presentations on quality assessment, ISCN nomenclature and genetic aberrations in different types of leukemia. The program includes two panel discussions (for live audience only) in which participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and present their own patient cases.
Since most presentations start with basic knowledge and end with up-to-date information on cancer genetics, this workshop will be of interest to anyone working in the field of (cyto)genetic diagnostics in cancer.
