ACMG 2017
ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting, March 22-24, 2017

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Define the limitations in current genetic testing technologies.
  • Identify the best genetic test in different clinical scenarios.
  • Construct solutions for overcoming limitations in genetic testing.

Tero-Pekka Alastalo, MD, Ph.D, will discuss the challenges presented in selecting genetic testing strategies with case examples used to illustrate how to optimize this process. The current limitations of genetic testing strategies, how to recognize and to overcome them will also be discussed.


We also welcome you to check our posters during the conference:

  • Accurate detection of copy number aberrations in inherited disorders using low-coverage whole genome sequencing,
  • Analytic Validation of Oligonucleotide-Selective Sequencing Panels for Clinical Diagnostics of Inherited Disorders


Looking forward to seeing you in Phoenix!
