Today’s genomic solutions. Tomorrow’s cancer breakthroughs.
Join us at ASCO 2019 to learn how Illumina genomic solutions are
enabling comprehensive genomic profiling, including fusion detection,
agnostic of fusion partner. With advancements in the understanding of
the role of NTRK fusions in advanced solid tumors, and the
potential for TKI inhibitors, it’s more important than ever to detect
and characterize these rare fusion events. However, not all detection
methods are equal. In fact, 60% of NTRK fusion partners can be
missed by commercially available amplicon-based NTRK detection
assays. Learn how Illumina NGS technology detects more fusions,
including NTRK fusions. With genomic advancements comprehensive
fusion detection, the possibilities are limitless.

This webinar will discuss the benefits of virus-specific target
capture combined with next-generation sequencing (NGS) to identify
viral infections and conduct comprehensive genomic and transcriptomic interrogation.
The high diversity of inter-virus genome types and intra-virus
genomic heterogeneity, together with the complexity of sample types,
make NGS-based clinical virology difficult, arduous, and expensive. A
single method that is able to use nucleic acids that are of low
quantity and poor quality to examine both DNA and RNA viruses from a
mixed cell population that may include human, bacteria, and viruses
would be ideal.
To this end, our speaker, Darrell L. Dinwiddie of the University of
New Mexico Health Sciences Center, will discuss a method his team has
been evaluating that uses virus-specific target capture probe sets
coupled with NGS.
Dr. Dinwiddie will discuss how this method has demonstrated
significant improvement in respiratory viral identification and genome
coverage compared to unenriched NGS. His team has shown the ability to
effectively capture and sequence viruses that may differ from the
probes by as much as 10 percent to 15 percent. These methods have
worked for viral sequencing from purified viral stocks, in
vitro cell culture, and clinical samples.
This webinar will also address the broader implications of this
work, including surveillance, epidemiologic studies, and public health planning.
For example, in two hospital outbreak studies, Dr. Dinwiddie and
colleagues have shown that target capture and NGS enabled sensitive
discrimination of the relatedness of respiratory syncytial virus and
human parainfluenza virus 3 isolates obtained during the outbreak and
provided evidence for source of transmission.
addition, through multi-year retrospective and prospective NGS studies
of respiratory viral infections at multiple pediatric hospitals, Dr.
Dinwiddie and his team have been able to examine seasonal respiratory
virus genomic variation, evolution, and distribution for several
respiratory viruses. This includes evaluating the match of vaccine to
circulating influenza virus strains and the correlation between virus
strains and clinical severity of infections. The recently developed
Human Pan Viral sequencing methods by Illumina and Twist Biosciences
will enable similar studies not only for respiratory viruses, but for
all types of human viral pathogens across all sample types of interest.
