Abstract:

This webinar will focus on gene fusion detection and characterization using Strand NGS, a sequencing data analysis software designed by biologists - for biologists.

Fusion events are commonly observed in cancer and are prevalent in both hematological and solid tumors. Though these events seem to be random, they show classic non-random behavior both structurally and functionally. Testing for these gene fusion events help in disease diagnosis, identifying therapeutic treatment, prognosis information, and functions as a guide towards targeted therapy decisions.

From a biologists perspective, Vaishali will exhibit on how to effortlessly utilize Strand NGS to perform an end to end analysis starting from aligning the raw data, filtering reads based on quality, perform gene fusion detection, filter the fusion events to remove false positives, annotate against already known fusion events, quantify the data to understand the change in expression levels caused due to these events, and lastly extrapolate the biological effects of the fused genes.
