AGBT Precision Health

Confidence is the currency of science.

IDT will be participating in AGBT Precision Health conference 2020 virtually this year. Learn about our solutions for life sciences and medical research, serving the academic, clinical, biotechnology, pharmaceutical development, and agricultural research communities. IDT’s NGS products are a critical part of oncology research, inherited and infectious disease research, biomarker development, diagnostics, and early screening. The conference runs Sept.10th through Sept 12th.

A Multi-Institutional Collaborative Effort to Facilitate Development and Standardization of Clinical Research Next Generation Sequencing

The accelerating uptake of NGS in the oncology diagnostics research space has placed a great degree of stress on individual academic laboratories to continually offer the latest in biomarker testing.  Inter-institutional collaborative development efforts represent a promising way forward to lessen development burdens and costs and to help promote cross-laboratory concordance. This session introduces the Genomic Oncology Academic Laboratory (GOAL), a consortium designed to facilitate collaboration in this area. GOAL partners with Integrated DNA Technologies, Inc., (IDT) to produce shareable, modular, low-cost hybrid capture systems capable of supporting cooperative, inter-institutional, clinical research, NGS development.

You will learn about
- Major obstacles for laboratory deployment of large-scale clinical research NGS
- An approach to increase standardization of clinical research NGS
- How shared gene content can facilitate standardization
