AMP 2022 Corporate Workshop
Title: Custom multiplex panels: From wastewater surveillance to pharmacogenomics (PGx) applications. Our distinguished panel discusses how they have utilized streamlined workflows to improve their research.
Duration: 50 min presentation + 10 min Q&A (from audience)
This video is a real-time recording of the 2022 American Molecular Pathology (AMP) Corporate Workshop held by Paragon Genomics in Phoenix, Arizona. In this workshop, Paragon Genomics partners with key collaborators as they demonstrate how their custom panels curated to their targets of interest, powered by CleanPlex® Technology, have enabled them to streamline and improve their research.
Edwin Oh, Associate Professor, Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine, presents the utilization of WGS tools to define the emergence and evolution of actionable pathogens (i.e. SARS-CoV-2, Influenza, monkeypox, and polio) from clinical and wastewater samples. For SARS, he shares how WGS variant analysis from wastewater shows a 2-4 weeks lead time for the discovery of all Omicron sub-variants ahead of public health surveillance and preliminary data of Oxford Nanopore Technology (ONT) compatibility with Paragon’s SARS-CoV-2 panel.
Matthew Beckman, Director of Laboratory Services, GENETWORx, will discuss the development and automation of NGS panels for personalized medicine in the mental health and medication space and the need and testing of a comprehensive PGx panel that contains enough genes to cover the complexities of a mental health component and still maintains personalized coverage but can accomplish high throughput scale to adequately serve the population health aspects.
