Discovering the Missing Link between my Rare Disease and an Olympic Athlete

GenomeWebinar

Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy Patient Advocate

Head of Lab; Clinical Genomics and Personalized Medicine Specialist,
Congenica

Deputy Head of Clinical Services,
Congenica

In this webinar, Jill Viles, an Iowa mother with no clinical training, shares her story of how she self-diagnosed her rare condition, a muscle-wasting disease caused by a mutation in the LMNA gene. She will also discuss how she discovered that a mutation in the same gene is the underlying cause for the excess muscle phenotype exhibited by Canadian Olympic hurdler Priscilla Lopes-Schliep. 

Members of Congenica's clinical team will also discuss their identification of a potential modifying gene, SMAD7, which may contribute to Jill’s alternative phenotype, and how these are being used to further research the cause of her disease.

This webinar will cover:

  • Jill's steps to discovery and how she first started working with Congenica
  • How Congenica found the potentially modifying variant
  • The SMAD7 gene mutation, and how Sapientia can be used to make similar diagnoses
  • How Jill is acting on this information and looking to the future

This webinar will discuss an optimized protocol for methyl-CpG binding domain sequencing (MBD-seq), which enables comprehensive, adequately powered, and cost-effective large-scale methylome-wide association studies (MWAS) of almost all 28 million CpG sites in the genome.

Studies of DNA methylation provide a promising route to gain further insight into many complex phenotypes, but detailed biological knowledge linking specific methylation sites to phenotypes is lacking, making MWAS critical. Whole genome bisulfite sequencing (WGB-seq) provides comprehensive coverage of the methylome, but is not yet practically feasible with the sample sizes required for MWAS. This limitation may explain why MWAS is commonly performed using microarray-based technologies, which assay only a very small fraction of the methylome.

Comparisons show that optimized MBD-seq approximates the coverage obtained with WGB-seq, but this performance is achieved at a fraction (~5%) of the reagent costs for WGB-seq, bringing it within the approximate price point of array-based methods. The MBD-seq protocol also allows for as little as 5-50 ng of high-quality genomic DNA as input, which allows for many sample types of limited availability to be assayed.

In this webinar, Karolina Åberg of Virginia Commonwealth University will present findings from MWASs of major depressive disorder and childhood trauma using DNA from brain, whole blood, and blood spots to provide a proof of concept that MBD-seq based MWAS can shed light on disease etiology and identify potential clinical biomarkers.

Laboratory Specialist, Clinical Genetics, University Medical Center Utrecht (UMCU)

 

This webinar will share how clinical genetics labs can integrate cytogenetics and molecular data to assess abnormalities using a single sample on a single workflow platform.

The current standard of care in genomics diagnostics laboratories is advancing toward array testing and whole exome sequencing on a single sample. Additionally, labs are shifting to the analysis of all molecular events for a patient sample – whether structural (CNVs, deletions, duplications, LOH regions, translocations) or molecular (SNPs, insertions, deletions). Labs do this because they are confident the diagnostic yield of combined CNV / NGS analysis exceeds that of each individual assay type, making 1+1=3.

Moreover, historically, the cytogenetics lab and the molecular lab were separate domains, within different groups at the lab or hospital. Cartagenia Bench Lab software, which was acquired by Agilent in 2015, catered to these different customer types with separate applications. While labs that did both arrays and sequencing could make the modules talk together and collaborate, they were not tightly integrated.

Today, with Alissa Interpret, the next evolution of Cartagenia Bench Lab recently released by Agilent, array data and WES data can now be integrated for a single patient sample, allowing for combined CNV/SNV analysis on a single workflow platform.

In this webinar, Ellen van Binsbergen, a laboratory specialist in clinical genetics at the University Medical Center Utrecht (UMCU) in The Netherlands, will share how Alissa Interpret was used in a case of multiple skeletal abnormalities to assess data from CNV analysis via SNP array and from WES analysis. By jointly triaging, classifying, and curating molecular and structural variants, she will show how UMCU was able to pinpoint variants inherited from the father AND deletions in the maternal allele – all yielded from a single sample, on one platform.

Laboratory Manager, Central Lab in Igenomix, Valencia (Spain)

Senior Product Manager, Labcyte

This webinar will discuss how acoustic liquid handling can reduce the time and costs for labs performing carrier screening with next-generation sequencing.

Pere Mir Pardo of Igenomix will provide an overview of his company's Carrier Genetic Test (CGT), which uses NGS to assess a couple's carrier status for 600 Mendelian diseases.

In 2017, Igenomix adopted the Labcyte Echo 525 Liquid Handler for NGS library preparation. Dr. Mir Pardo will share how the new technology has enabled the reduction of the hands-on time for the CGT protocol, ultimately leading to a reduction in costs.

From October 2015 through December 2016, Igenomix analyzed 6,156 samples using the conventional NGS protocol. The Echo system was introduced into the laboratory in January 2017 and from then until July 2017 a total of 4,277 samples were analyzed using the Echo system protocol. Results of both protocols are similar in terms of sensitivity (0.9858) and specificity (0.9997) of mutation detection.

Iain Russell will present an overview of acoustic droplet ejection technology, describe the benefits of acoustic liquid handling for Genomics applications and provide a review of how the Echo is being utilized in for a variety of applications common to Genomics labs.

Attendees of this webinar will gain a deeper understanding of the features and benefits of acoustic liquid handling. Additionally, attendees will learn how NGS-based expanded CGT analysis constitutes a powerful tool to predict risk for Mendelian diseases, as well as how the Echo system makes the test more affordable and widely available to a higher number of patients.

Professor, Hematology, Medical School of Sorbonne University, Paris; Head of the Hematology Laboratory, Saint-Antoine Hospital 

This webinar will share details from a study at the Saint-Antoine Research Center, Sorbonne University to test the feasibility of a high-sensitivity, clone-specific strategy for evaluating minimal residual disease (MRD) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

AML is a genetically heterogeneous group of blood malignancies. Some specific translocations or mutations, such as t(8;21), inv(16), or NPM1 mutations, can serve as markers of treatment response, or detection of MRD. However, most AMLs harbor several mutations ordered in time to form the founding clone and subsequent linear or branching subclones. Improving the tools for a clone-specific, multi-target detection of MRD may be of particular importance in the future.

In this webinar, François Delhommeau, of Saint-Antoine Research Center will discuss a research study to test such a strategy in a retrospective cohort of 69 AML cases. Delhommeau and colleagues established the clonal architecture of each AML using standard cytogenetic and molecular assays, as well as targeted next generation sequencing (NGS). From this, they designed a clone-specific strategy based on fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) and high-sensitivity NGS (Haloplex HS) to detect chromosomal aberrations and mutations, respectively, in follow-up samples.

The combination of these techniques allowed the team to track chromosomal and genomic lesions down to 0.5% of the cell population in follow-up samples. By using these techniques, they found that 65 out of 69 cases were evaluable at several time points of follow up. Moreover, they observed that initiating events, such as DNMT3A or TET2 mutations, often persist, and appear not to be appropriate markers to predict short term relapse when considered in isolation from other factors. In contrast, the persistence of several lesions in more than 0.4% of the cells from remission samples may be predictive of lower leukemia-free and overall survivals.

Although larger prospective studies are needed to confirm these results, the data that Dr. Delhommeau will share show that a multi-target, clone-specific, minimal residual disease follow-up strategy may be feasible in the vast majority of AML cases.

This webinar discusses the findings of a recent effort to sequence microbial communities in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica, one of the world's most extreme environments.

Receding lakes within the Dry Valleys of Antarctica provide a unique opportunity to study the effects of prolonged desiccation on microbial composition and function. Buried upslope from these lakes are desiccated microbial mats that inhabited the larger paleolakes thousands of years ago. These ancient mats hold insights into adaptations of life to past Antarctic conditions and also present an opportunity to explore the persistence of life in extremely harsh conditions. 

Our panelists share the details of this work. After collecting samples from three Dry Valleys, they extracted DNA using a gentle lysis technique to preserve long reads and a polyenzymatic treatment, developed by the Extreme Microbiome Project, to maximize yields from different cell types. They also recovered RNA from a subset of our paleomat samples. The results of the study demonstrate that cells appear to persist over timescales spanning thousands of years, with implications for our understanding of cell biology, Antarctic microbiology and biogeography, and the limits of life in arid environments.

Viewer can expect to learn: 

- Approaches to extremophile microbiology

- Techniques developed by the Extreme Microbiome Project 

- How new methods and new sequencing technologies like MinION and PacBio may help recover long DNA reads

About one year ago, the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP), with liaison representation from the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), and College of American Pathologists (CAP), released a guideline on reporting somatic cancer variants. 

The AMP guidelines were created to address a specific need: oncologists required a standardized presentation of somatic variants in a diagnostic test report in order to help them quickly understand the results and the importance of each variant in the context of the patient’s disease. Several groups have published “levels of evidence” for the categorization of somatic variants, however the molecular pathology field lacked a single standard. The authors of the AMP guidelines collected and studied reporting schemata from the field and laid out a tier-based reporting system, with defined levels of evidence for each variant’s ability to predict response or resistance to a therapy in the context of a disease, or association with prognostic or diagnostic significance in a disease.  The guidelines were researched and developed by the leading industry organizations without commercial association and are positioned to become an industry standard. 

This webinar focuses on the methodology and benefits of mapping the AMP guideline's Levels of Evidence (LOEs) to somatic variants, addresses the complexity that comes with this process, and explores what industry leaders are doing to address that complexity.

This webinar discusses a molecular barcode-based error correction method that enables combined mutation detection and DNA copy number profiling through circulating tumor DNA sequencing.

Mutations and DNA copy number aberrations (CNAs) are important predictive biomarkers in cancer medicine, but spatial intratumor heterogeneity can hinder accurate cancer profiling from biopsies and cancer evolution alters genomic profiles over time.

Circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) sequencing may overcome these hurdles by enabling multi-timepoint testing and the detection of subclones that are disseminated in space.

In this webinar, Dr. Marco Gerlinger of the Institute of Cancer Research, London, discusses an approach that combines solution hybrid capture for target enrichment and molecular barcodes for sequencing error correction. This customizable ultra-sensitive ctDNA sequencing technology can be applied to 25 ng of ctDNA, a quantity that can usually be obtained from 10-20 ml of blood. Deep sequencing of the target region with over 20,000x depth enables mutation detection in driver gene panels with a sensitivity of up to 0.1%. The analysis of off-target reads allows simultaneous genome-wide CNA profiling.

Sample preparation, sequencing, and data analysis workflows as well as a concordance analysis of ctDNA and tumor sequencing in colorectal cancers are presented in the webinar.

In these times of economic constraint and increasing research costs, shared resource cores have become a cost-effective and essential platform for researchers who seek to investigate complex translational research questions. Cores produce significant value that cannot be captured using traditional financial metrics. Benchmarking studies conducted by the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities and other organizations indicate that most research cores do not fully recover operating expenses. As such, these “operational losses” represent institutional investment, which, if well planned and managed, produce future returns for the institution’s research community that extend far beyond subsidized pricing.

Current literature indicates that there is no single measure that can provide an accurate representation of the full picture of the return on research investments.

This presentation attempts to provide instruction and examples using the Balanced Score Card (BSC), (Kaplan and Norton), as a tool for assessing the return on investment for research core facilities.

The BSC supplements traditional financial measures with criteria to measure performance in three additional areas — customers, internal business processes, and learning and growth. The presenters discuss and share their experiences on how they have utilized these ROI approaches to streamline their core operations and make sound investment decisions and strategies to further the mission of their institutions and to meet the expectations of their various investors and key stakeholders.

This webinar discusses the role of a newly discovered, brain-enriched form of non-CpG DNA methylation in neural development and disease.

Neurons in the brain must express diverse complements of genes in order to form synaptic connections and execute physiological responses to stimulation. But how is this complex neuronal transcriptome regulated? Do unique mechanisms exist in neurons to control this process?

During the webinar, Harrison Gabel of Washington University describes a study that used chromatin immunoprecipitation-sequencing, RNA-sequencing, and whole-genome bisulfite-sequencing to demonstrate that uniquely high levels of non-CpG methylation in the brain play a critical role in regulating neuron-specific transcriptional programs.

Dr. Gabel and colleagues have further uncovered evidence that this non-CpG DNA methylation is an important binding site for MeCP2, the protein disrupted in the neurological disorder Rett syndrome.

Dr. Gabel describes these and other studies that have used genomic methods to define how methylated CA (mCA) accumulates in neurons, determine the molecular mechanism of transcriptional regulation mediated by mCA and MeCP2, and understand how disruption of this gene-regulatory pathway contributes to neurodevelopmental disease.

Validation of a UMI-Powered NGS Panel for Improved Variant Calling

GenomeWebinar

Director, Labsolutions, LLC

Global Product Manager, Qiagen

This webinar discusses the benefits of using unique molecular indices to overcome some challenges associated with next-generation sequencing panels.

Targeted NGS panels have been instrumental in advancing the field of cancer genomics by enabling the analysis of hundreds of mutations across many genes in an individual assay.

The biggest challenges, however, to realizing the full benefits of targeted NGS panels are 1) PCR duplicates and errors introduced during the workflow, which result in reduced confidence in calling variants such as single nucleotide variants and indels; 2) low levels of enrichment and sequencing uniformity, which affect the ability to call low-frequency variants; and 3) long turnaround times and high DNA input requirements, which limit the practicality of NGS panels.

These challenges can be overcome by building a robust workflow with short turnaround times that incorporates unique molecular indices (UMIs) to correct for PCR errors and single primer extension (SPE) to enhance uniformity and reduce the DNA input requirements.

During this webinar, Dr. Bernadette Wildemore of Labsolutions discusses the validation of a UMI-powered DNA panel and associated bioinformatics pipelines in high-throughput routine use. Dr. Raed Samara of Qiagen then discusses the benefits of incorporating UMIs and SPE to overcome the current challenges of using targeted NGS panels.
