Genomics: Clinical Implementation

This channel includes news headlines and educational resources regarding the clinical implementation of genomics assays, including development, validation, quality control, standardization, and the practical and commercial considerations for labs adopting these tests. 

The study adds to growing evidence around the utility of cell-free DNA testing in lung cancer patients, while highlighting shortcomings of the approach.

Experts discussed the benefits and challenges of implementing precision medicine protocols for oncology patients at this week's Tri-Conference meeting

The VA decided to bring this testing in house to streamline and standardize the process for doctors and gauge markers that are relevant to the veteran population.

Data being presented at the upcoming AACR meeting show that Guardant's liquid biopsy test provided more accurate and rapid mutation detection than tissue genotyping.

The assay monitors mutations across a patient's genome and matches them to mutations found in a patient's resected tumor and in DNA in the bloodstream.
