Next-Generation Sequencing of Hematologic Neoplasms


This video lecture will focus on next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based tests in hematologic neoplasms, particularly the clinical utility of this technology and how it is revolutionizing the management of patients with hematologic neoplasms. The design and development of NGS tests, including a basic overview of a test pipeline with both laboratory and informatics components, will also be discussed.

Originally presented on December 17, 2015, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
