EJP RD Training Course - Quality assurance, variant interpretation and data management in the NGS diagnostic era

This training course is part of a series of programs put forth by the European Joint Programme for Rare Diseases (EJP RD). The theme of this 3-day residential training course is “Quality assurance, variant interpretation and data management in the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) diagnostic era”. The aim is to teach participants about the evaluation of the pathogenic nature and clinical significance of genetic variants, on the criteria that have to be set to the NGS analysis pipelines and on the use of international databases. The course will build on expertise gained by EuroGentest and help in the translation of research tools to diagnostic applications (in line with the IRDiRC objectives).

Course registration is free, but you must apply before 20 July 2020. There is a limit of 35 participants. The training courses are accessible to laboratory scientists (EBMG registered), junior laboratory scientists, clinical geneticists, other medical specialists in training, policy makers and assessors for laboratory accreditation, and patient  representatives, with a basic knowledge in biology or medicine.
