Oxford Gene Technology Ltd. to Host Workshop at ICHG/American Society of Human Genetics 2011

Published: Sep 30, 2011

Oxford, UK – 30th September 2011. Oxford Gene Technology (OGT), provider of innovative clinical genetics and diagnostic solutions to advance molecular medicine, will be discussing its new comprehensive targeted sequencing service at the International Congress of Human Genetics (ICHG) meeting in Montreal, Canada (11-15 October 2011). The conference, hosted by the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), will include an OGT workshop entitled “Adding value through analysis”, which will explain how Targeted Sequencing is being utilised to deliver rapid and cost-effective analysis of human genetic disorders.

OGT’s targeted sequencing service is designed to provide meaningful results rather than insurmountable data sets. These are presented via an easy-to-use, interactive analysis report that makes it easy to sort, filter and prioritise the extensively annotated results. High-quality data is obtained using OGT’s internationally-recognised probe design and independently-accredited quality control procedures. OGT’s CEO Dr Mike Evans commented: “OGT is all about producing highly accurate, clear-cut results, and our new sequencing options can be easily combined with other aspects of our Genefficiency™ genomic services offering. In this way, microarray and sequencing data can be fully integrated to provide a highly validated and accurate genomic research solution”.

In addition to hosting this informative workshop, OGT will also be offering individual software demonstrations of its interactive sequencing report, which provides effortless access to biologically meaningful results. To register for a demonstration, contact OGT at services@ogt.co.uk.
