This webinar will discuss the use of new software tools to support the diagnosis of CTFR-related disorders using next-generation sequencing.

Molecular diagnosis of cystic fibrosis and CFTR-related disorders is based on the detection of mutations in the CFTR gene. A wide range of techniques is still used to identify CFTR gene sequence variations. While there is no gold standard or preferred method for routine testing, the rapid adoption of NGS technologies in diagnostics laboratories is enabling a range of new approaches.
