NNLM Resource Picks: Finding Clinically Relevant Genetic Information
Date: Wednesday, September 25, 2019
Time: 3:00pm, Eastern Standard Time
Did you know genetic testing is available for over 2,000 rare and common conditions, and that over 500 laboratories conduct genetic testing? Clinicians using genetic diagnostics rely on variant classifications to arrive at a diagnosis, decide on interventions, and evaluate care. But how do you locate this information?
Peter Cooper, NCBI Staff Scientist, will join us live to introduce three resources for finding clinically relevant genetic information. In this session, he will:
- Explain the validity of clinical variation information in the ClinVar database.
- Locate information about a genetic condition related to a specific list of symptoms using MedGen.
- Locate tests for a clinical feature, gene or disease using the Genetic Testing Registry.
MLA CE credit is available for those who register and complete the evaluation form!
NNLM Resource Picks is a collaborative, bimonthly, webcast series featuring the National Library of Medicine resources to increase awareness of these resources as well as encourage their integration by libraries and other organizations to more fully serve their colleagues and communities. All sessions are recorded with closed captioning and archived. Click here for upcoming and past NNLM Resource Picks sessions.
