Description:
Human whole-genome sequencing (hWGS) is a powerful Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) service that delivers a high-resolution comprehensive view of the entire human genome. It empowers researchers to catalog the genetic constitution of individuals and capture all variants single-nucleotide variations (SNVs), insertions and deletions (InDels), copy number variations (CNVs), and large structural variants (SV) present, to identify inherited disorders, characterize mutations that drive cancer progression, track disease outbreaks and so much more.

Equipped with Illumina’s NovaSeq 6000, Novogene can sequence up to 280,000 human genomes per year at the lowest cost per genome possible. With the addition of Oxford Nanopore PromethION and PacBio Sequel Systems, Novogene also provides hWGS services with a more complete and accurate characterization of the human genome, that complements missing sequencing reads, especially in highly polymorphic and highly repetitive regions, from short reads sequencing.

Join us on October 28th, 2020, to learn more about how Novogene’s extensive expertise, optimized workflow, and customizable bioinformatics analysis options work in concert with our data output and quality guarantees, to meet your hWGS project goals.

The 30-minute webinar will consist of a live presentation followed by a live Q&A session.

Introduction:
A co-hosted webinar by Novogene and IDT educating researchers and investigators on the latest innovations and breakthroughs with NGS technologies. This webinar will consist of presentations by IDT and Novogene, followed by a live Q&A session.

IDT’s Presentation Description:
The xGen™ Exome Research Panel v2 is updated with the latest human genome build (hg38) and sequence annotation (RefSeq109), spanning a 34 Mb target region of the human genome. IDT’s new target-aware algorithm and proprietary off-target analysis were used to design the xGen Exome Research Panel v2, resulting in deep and comprehensive coverage across the entire target space. Compared with other commercially available human exome panels, the xGen Exome Research Panel v2 provides an exceptional on-target rate and complete coverage of the human exome as well as offering greater flexibility in multiplexing levels. In addition, large-scale production using IDT’s synthesis platform provides a unique advantage over other array-based synthesis platforms by delivering consistency over time.

– xGen Exome Research Panel v2 is updated with IDT’s new design algorithm as well as the latest human genome assembly (hg38) and sequence annotation (RefSeq109).
– xGen Exome Research Panel v2 provides a superior on-target rate and the most complete coverage of the human exome.
– Our deep coverage and high capture efficiency reduce sequencing costs.
– Individual probe synthesis and QC ensures consistent lot-to-lot performance, which minimizes expensive revalidation.

Novogene’s Presentation Description:
The exome comprises the protein-coding regions of the genome responsible for most of the exhibited phenotypes. For example, in humans, only 2% of the human genome contains ~85% of known disease-related gene variants. Whole-exome sequencing (WES) is a cost-effective next-generation sequencing (NGS) method to detect protein-coding variants of the genome. The exome enrichment method comprehensively covers the coding region and identify coding variants with applications ranging from population genetics, genetic disease, and cancer studies. Moreover, this method has the capability to expand targeted content to include untranslated regions (UTRs) and microRNA for a more comprehensive view of gene regulation. Sequencing only the coding regions of the genome enables researchers to focus their resources on the genes most likely to affect phenotype and offers an accessible combination of turnaround time and price.

He is an ABMGG board certified clinical molecular geneticist. He was the Assistant Professor at the Department of Human and Molecular Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, and the Assistant Director at Baylor Genetics.

Description:
Whole exome sequencing (WES) has been widely used as a molecular diagnostic tool in clinical settings. In addition to single nucleotide variations (SNVs), copy number variations (CNVs), and uniparental disomy (UPD) are genetic variants/events that can also cause genetic disorders. However, detecting of those variants may not be included in a routine pipeline. In addition, although CNVs are technically detectable by WES, the specificity of detection is relatively low, with many false positive signals confounding the interpretation and reporting of such variants.In this webinar, Dr. Xia Wang from AiLife Diagnostics will discuss the important roles of CNV, AOH, and UPD underlying undiagnosed genetic diseases; explore the challenges to tackle different types of variants; and explore how the simultaneously detecting and confirming different types of variants can further increase the diagnostic accuracy and efficiency.

Laura Li (PhD, FACMGG) received a Doctor in Philosophy in Molecular Biology and Genetics from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She is the founder of Breakthrough Genomics, and former Clinical Director at Illumina and Associate Director of the Genomics Lab at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

Description:
There are 30 million people within the US who carry rare diseases, and often the average time to receive an accurate diagnosis is 4.8 years. With the sequencing cost dropping rapidly, more and more people are doing whole exome sequencing testing for rare disease diagnosis. Whole exome sequencing is comprehensive, interrogating all protein coding genes in a cost-effective manner, which is ideal for rare genetic disease diagnoses.

In this seminar presented by Clinical Molecular Geneticist Laura Li from Breakthrough Genomics, we will talk about how to efficiently analyze your exome data for rare diseases, or to use exome data to analyze your favorite gene panels using the machine learning powered clinical software platform ENLITER™. Real clinical cases will be presented to show how you can diagnose rare diseases in minutes, not hours or days.

Description:
In contrast to whole tissue RNA sequencing, single cell sequencing has been a promising tool in the research for medical and clinical treatments by analyzing individual cell at its micro-environments and making discoveries of unknown cell types particularly in rare diseases.

Obtaining quantitative information on gene expression changes within cells can be laborious and challenging. Spatial transcriptomes, an emerging technique that utilizes spatially barcoded, complementary DNA primers for full-transcriptome capture on tissue sections can be added to RNA-seq data to transform our understanding of tissue functional organization and cell to cell interactions in situ.
