Clinical Utility of Comprehensive and Fast Genomic Interpretation


Sr. Director of Clinical Operations, 
Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine

Scientist, Fabric Genomics

This webinar will discuss the critical role of genomic interpretation software for clinical labs looking to establish comprehensive NGS testing programs. Accurate and fast software for variant calling, alignment, interpretation, and clinical reporting is an essential component of genomic medicine, with the potential to significantly impact patient outcomes and improve healthcare economics.

In this webinar, Shareef Nahas of Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine (RCIGM) will present various case studies that demonstrate how Fabric Genomics’ Opal Clinical software helps achieve accurate and rapid whole-genome interpretation of disease-causing variants in critically ill children.

RCIGM’s goal is a 24-hour turnaround time from blood sample to clinical report. Dr. Nahas will discuss key interpretation and reporting capabilities needed to launch and scale clinical NGS testing, including the need for advanced computational algorithms to maximize diagnostic yield.

Our second speaker, Vanisha Mistry of Fabric Genomics, will address best practices for adoption, deployment, and scaling of genomic data analysis platforms in the clinical lab, including automation and streamlining NGS workflows. She will review sample workflows for panels, exomes, and genomes, and will demonstrate their value to clinical labs.
