Course : Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis and Screening

Genomics in Clinical Practice Educational Series - Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis and 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.

Each 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. Explain the evolving range of genetic abnormalities that are amenable to PGD testing.

3. Explain the types of results encountered in prenatal whole genome analysis by cytogenomic arrays as a prelude to what may be seen in embryo testing.

4. Describe the various approaches to preimplantation genetic testing and the impact of genetic information on embryo selection.

5. Explain the limitations that arise in single cell testing by molecular methods.

6. Explain the process by which genomic testing results are generated and analytically and clinically interpreted and the role of bioinformatics in this process.
