  • Nine Talks and Posters featuring Saphyr® Data to Be Featured at the 13th European Cytogenomics Conference

Saphyr data generated using Bionano Optical Genome Mapping (OGM) is making a big splash at the 13th European Cytogenomics Conference being held virtually from July 3-5, 2021. The meeting features 5 presentations and 4 posters from Saphyr customers and Bionano scientists spanning clinical and discovery research. 

Bionano Satellite Symposium:
Saturday, July 3, 2021 | 12:55 – 13:50 CEST
Optical Genome Mapping: Unrivaled Structural Variant Detection for Clinical Research and Complex Genome Analysis
Chloe Tessereau, PhD, Bionano Genomics


Optical Genome Mapping for Diagnosis of Pediatric Leukemias
Elena García Sánchez, PhD, Hospital Infantil Universitario Niño Jesús

Analysis of Genomic Complexity in Patients With Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) Using Bionano Optical Genome Mapping
Anna Puiggros, PhD, IMIM – Hospital del Mar

Description: In this seminar, you will learn how Optical Genome Mapping (OGM) is used for the characterization of complex cancer samples. Our first speaker, Dr. Elena García Sánchez, will present their internal evaluation study of leukemia samples against gold standard techniques for the identification of structural and copy number variants. Our second speaker, Dr. Anna Maria Puiggros, will present their study for the identification of CLL samples with complex karyotype and show how OGM improves the detection of chromosomal rearrangements missed by classical cytogenetic techniques.

Oral Presentations:
