Course Description

Weekly live sessions on Wednesdays 5:30-7:30 pm 

The course will cover basic and advanced concepts in cancer genomics and will address practice guidelines created and adopted by authoritative resources such as ACMG, AMP, ASCO and NCCN. The major focus will be on the applications of cytogenetic and molecular genetics in the diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutics. The didactic and core lectures will be supplemented by clinical case discussion in germline genetics, hematopathology and solid tumors.
