Course : Cystic Fibrosis Carrier Screening
Genomics in Clinical Practice Educational Series - Cystic Fibrosis Carrier Screening
The series focuses on the role and use of genome and exome sequencing technologies in clinical practice; helping current physicians and other healthcare professional who are not board-certified geneticists to understand the application of genetics and genomics in their practice in the areas of Genetic Testing, Genomic Sequencing, Genetic Counseling, Sequencing and Interpretation, and Reporting and Delivery Results.
This webinar contains several modules addressing different aspects of the application of genomic testing to the particular area of clinical use.
This activity is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Illumina, Inc.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
1. Explain the different types of preconceptional and prenatal screening, including genetic screening and screening for carrier states.
2. Describe the genetics of and range of phenotypes associated with CFTR gene
3. Describe the laboratory approaches to testing for CFTR variants and the transition from targeted testing to the use of genome sequencing platforms for testing including the associated bioinformatics and ultimate result interpretation.
4. Explain the pre-test and post-test genetic counseling processes, best practices, and issues that arise in cystic fibrosis carrier screening.
