The diagnostic application of next-generation sequencing (NGS) of inherited disorders in the clinical setting offers new challenges and practice opportunities for pathologists. Faculty will update participants on NGS principles and processes and describe clinical scenarios and examples in which NGS based multigene panel and exome sequencing are being applied. They will highlight the essential role of bioinformatics in NGS data analysis and present approaches to exome-scale data analysis for causal gene identification in patients with suspected genetic disorders. Exome sequencing provides an unprecedented view into the genetic composition of individuals, posing unique pre- and post-testing issues, including appropriate clinical use, informed consent, and results interpretation and delivery.
