Practical Workshops

Delegates will be split into groups for the practical workshops.

ACMG Workshop - We encourage you to bring your difficult to classify variants with you to work on during the workshop.

HGVS Nomenclature Workshop - We encourage you to bring any variants you are having trouble naming with you to the workshop.

HPO Workshop - If you are unclear about how to describe a phenotype using HPO, bring it with you to the workshop.


SOPHiA GENETICS Workshop:  Hit the target! How to reach clinical-grade performance in NGS data analysis  &  Find the needle in the haystack! Tackling the challenges of exomes data interpretation with an AI-driven platform.


QIAGEN Workshop - Clinical Genomics -  Interpretation and Reporting with QIAGEN Bioinformatics
