Next Generation Sequencing as a Diagnostics Platform
August 19, 2014 |
Next generation sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized genomics and is now on the verge of being widely adopted for medical sequencing. Until recently, comprehensive genetic testing for genetically heterogeneous diseases was limited by the high cost of traditional (Sanger) sequencing technology. NGS technologies have now completely eliminated this limit such that virtually any gene with a published association to the disease of interest can be tested. Whole exome or whole genome sequencing (WES/WGS) is the ultimate genetic test and many success stories provide a taste of its power. However, while the cost of generating high-quality whole genome sequence data is rapidly dropping, analysis of the enormous number of variants detected is still too complex to implement WGS/WES as a first line genetic test. Targeted NGS-based gene panels are typically an order of magnitude smaller than WES/WGS based testing but follow the same principles. Screening large sets of genes is particularly useful when the clinical diagnosis is uncertain as it eliminates the need for costly and lengthy cascade testing that has dominated genetic testing in the past. Drawbacks are significantly increased numbers of detected variants, which poses novel challenges for post-analytic data analyses. The focus of this short course is on understanding the use of NGS in clinical diagnosis, practical implementation of NGS in clinical laboratories and analysis of large data sets by using bioinformatics tools to parse and interpret data in relation to the clinical phenotype. The concluding presentation is dedicated to quality and standardization of NGS assays.

Operational Excellence in Bioprocessing
August 18, 2014 |
Ensuring quality in bioprocesses that complies with regulatory requirements and mitigates risk often results in very high bottom-line costs. Adopting best practices early in the development process and customizing these approaches to operational excellence from other highly competitive industries are currently taking place in biopharmaceutical production. This course provides both an overview of these approaches along with details about how they work, as well as case studies and data addressing how these innovations have been applied successfully in bioprocessing and the development of biopharmaceuticals.

Understanding EMT: Mechanisms and Metastasis to MET
February 20, 2012 |
Epethelial Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) plays a critical role in cancer cells, but understanding of its mechanisms is incomplete. EMT causes cells to develop increased motility, invasiveness, and greater resistance to apoptosis. These changes make the cells more like stem cells, allowing them to self renew. This course provides a framework of the underlying molecular mechanisms while addressing stem cells, and cancer progression, cMET and their activity as anti-metastasis agents, and the Mesenchymal-Epethelial Transition (MET) as an essential process for tumor re-initiation, colonization, and metastasis.
