Watch our presentation from the Translational Dx Virtual Summit

Fabric Genomics will share a unique new presentation at an upcoming virtual summit, Translational Dx: Advances in Multi-Omic Oncology. Join us and fellow industry experts to learn about the latest advances in molecular oncology tools. On September 23rd, we share a presentation and live Q&A. Check out our virtual booth and networking sessions for more participation in the leading edge of molecular diagnostics and monitoring.

Overview

Hereditary cancer testing represents one of the fastest growing areas of precision medicine. As labs launch these tests, decisions about which genes to include, which assays to use, and how to accurately and consistently interpret variants can have economic and clinical implications. Here we discuss best practices for panel design, gene curation and variant interpretation and how Fabric software and clinical interpretation services are helping labs of all sizes deploy hereditary cancer testing at scale.
