How clinical labs can confidently assess cancer-associated variants with real-world data and expert-curated genomic evidence

November 16, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Across various stages of the clinical oncology workflow, from panel design to genomic testing and molecular tumor boards, the identification and validation of actionable genomic alterations is critical. The advent of next-generation sequencing (NGS) has led to an exponential increase in the number of variants detected in tumor testing, posing a challenge for clinical cancer genetics professionals seeking to confidently discern clinically relevant mutations that can guide patient care decisions.
Join Dr. Umadevi Thirumurthi, Associate Director of Global Product Management for Oncology at QIAGEN Digital Insights as she discusses how the Human Somatic Mutation Database (HSMD), an expert-curated somatic variant database, can enhance your clinical NGS workflow.
Attendees will learn how HSMD:
  • Can be used to design targeted panels, streamline somatic variant analysis, and support molecular tumor board decisions;
  • Provides access to data from over 419,00 real-world oncology cases and human-certified expert curation
  • Enables users to effortlessly explore mutational characteristics across genes, synthesize critical information from drug labels and professional guidelines, investigate ongoing clinical trials, and access comprehensive annotations for each observed variant
