Course : ACMG Genomics Case Conference December 2015
Expanding the Role of Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) into the Prenatal Setting
Hosted by Baylor College of Medicine
Click Launch for details.
During The ACMG Genomics Case Conferences, a team from select institutions will present and lead discussions on an intriguing, complex and/or difficult patient case in the area of genomics. The primary focus of these case conferences will be on the adaptation of exome or genome sequencing technology in clinical care.
Today a team from Baylor College of Medicine will review the molecular diagnoses in genomic sequencing, drawing on prenatal cases from their clinics.

Session learning objectives
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
1. Identify prenatal cases that warrant evaluation by clinical Whole Exome Sequencing (WES)
2. Discuss the complexities and barriers to offering WES in the prenatal setting
3.Explain the optimization of clinical WES test to allow rapid turnaround time (TAT) in the prenatal setting
