Exome Sequencing as a First Tier Test for Congenital Anomalies or Neurodevelopmental Disorders with David Miller, MD, PhD

  • In this webinar, you will learn how to:

    • Summarize the types of patients typically seen in clinical genetics practice, and the types of genetic alterations that cause both rare genetic syndromes and non-syndromic neurodevelopmental disorders
    • Compare and contrast genetic testing methodologies, including diagnostic yield for different tests in these patient populations
    • Identify workflows and potential challenges for clinical implementation of exome sequencing as a first tier test in these patient populations
    Webinar CEU

    Only the live session qualifies for CEUs but when possible, we host the recordings on our website and NSGC recommends participants to use their personal email instead of work email addresses to ensure they receive their CEU certificates.
