1st Edition  Conference

Genome Imaging Lunch Seminar at USC

"Discover implications of structural variation discovery in human genomics"
The promise of personalized medicine in cancer remains elusive, because no single technology can comprehensively detect all the rearrangements in the human genome. Mark Chaisson, Assistant Professor in Quantitative and Computational Biology at USC will present examples of how Bionano is helping to take a complete survey of the structural variation in the human genome in order to better understand genetic disease. Sven Bocklandt, Ph.D. Director of Scientific Affairs at Bionano will discuss .. continue reading applications for heterogeneous cancer samples and mosaic patient cases. Bionano Genomics’ offers an extremely long-read technology, providing unmatched sensitivity to detect structural variation, genome wide, at low cost. Our de novo maps can resolve complex repetitive regions, identify Copy Number Variations, and elucidate genome-wide structural variation like balanced/unbalanced translocations, inversions, and indels with much higher sensitivity and precision than sequencing-based methods.


  • Detection of any type of structural variant with more than 90% sensitivity
  • Variant allele fraction as low as 5%, genome wide, and completely unbiased
  • De novo somatic mutations
