Webinar DEC 06: Bioinformatics Series - FFPE in Your NGS Study

Join Richard Corbett from Canada's Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre for a one-hour webinar session on using FFPE samples in a next generation sequencing (NGS) study.

Wednesday, Dec 06
10:00 - 11:00 am Pacific


As access to fresh tissue becomes increasingly difficult, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples provide a possible resource for large cohort studies with associated clinical information. However, FFPE samples present unique challenges in sample processing and bioinformatic analysis. This presentation will touch on high level sample processes (library construction and sequencing), as well as bioinformatic artifacts and their associated workarounds that are unique to processing FFPE data.

Who Should Attend:

  • Students, researchers and anyone with an interest in sequencing or bioinformatics.

Pre-Requisite Skills / Knowledge:

  • No prior knowledge or experience is necessary. This will be an information-sharing session.
