Tumor Biology 101: Detecting Genomic Targets and Mutation Patterns

Recent scientific advances in immuno-oncology have created a need for pathologists and laboratory professionals to better understand the ways tumors can undergo mutational change.  This program will provide you with an understanding of the basics of genomics, MSI, genomic instability, tumor mutational burden, homologous repair defects, and more, along with the interplay and indication.  You will also learn genome integrity is maintained, what happens that will cause abnormality, how mutational burden is measured, recombination defects, and more.  You’ll walk away with an understanding of how next generation sequencing (NGS) can detect different types of genomic targets in tumor specimens, how to recognize patterns of tumor mutations for monitoring clonal evolution and treatment response, and how to recognize mutational patterns associated with tumor mutational burden (TMB), microsatellite instability (MSI), and homologous repair deficiency.

 

The activity offers 1.0 CME, CMLE, or SAMs CME credit.

Item Details:

The rapid rate of breakthroughs in immuno-oncology (IO) have created newand nonintuitivediagnostic paradigms and testing protocols for cancer. This has led to considerable confusion in the broader pathology and laboratory medicine community about the basic science of IO, as well as a lack of...
