To establish precision medicine in the health care service, there is a need for doctors and clinical laboratory geneticists to understand how to interpret and use genetic variant information from next generation sequencing technology, in the clinic. This course focusses on the interpretation of single nucleotide variants and copy number variants from exome sequencing data for obtaining a genetic diagnosis. Lectures address topics like filtering strategies, population frequencies, ACMG guidelines, and HGVS nomenclature. During practical sessions you will apply the material from the lectures to obtain a genetic diagnosis for real-life exome cases. The course is intended for individuals that have beginning or intermediate experience with exome sequencing.
