Brief description
Rapid clinical genomics testing options can provide answers faster, enabling healthcare providers to make important clinical decisions in critical and time-sensitive situations, such as for NICU and PICU patients. This presentation is intended for genetic counsellors who wish to expand their genomic sequencing knowledge base, especially regarding diagnostic yields, the utility of rapid testing options in the NICU settings, detection of CNVs, mosaicism and MEIs from ES/GS data, identification of candidate genes, and the importance of reanalysis.
