An integrated workflow for targeted NGS–from panel design to variant interpretation–all in one kit – Part II

Date: 11/04/2019 Duration: 01:00:00 Presented by: Raed Samara, Ph.D.

To uncover meaningful biological insights from your targeted NGS data, you may be faced with several challenges, from choosing an appropriate library preparation method that covers specific targets of interest to connecting disparate informatics tools for sequence analysis and variant interpretation. These issues can be particularly critical when using custom NGS panel designs.

QIAGEN has developed an integrated workflow approach to address these NGS challenges.  In this live two-part webinar series, we will describe the latest QIAseq DNA Panel kits, which include:

  • QIAseq Targeted DNA Panels: Generate uniform NGS libraries for low-frequency variant detection using Unique Molecular Indices (UMIs), and improve coverage of GC-rich regions using Single Primer Extension (SPE) technology
  • CLC Genomics Workbench: Use pre-built sequence analysis workflows that can run in a push-button mode for all off-the-shelf QIAseq DNA panels, and that are easily configured for use with your custom QIAseq panel designs
  • QIAGEN Clinical Insight-Interpret for QIAseq: Perform comprehensive variant interpretation with software that provides an easy-to-understand report for each variant detected in your sample, powered by the QIAGEN Knowledge Base, the industry’s most complete and up-to-date repository of curated scientific information

Used together in one kit*, these best-in-class components allow you to design, execute and interpret NGS results in a single integrated workflow with the confidence that comes from the quality and support for which QIAGEN is known.  By attending both webinars, you will learn how to readily execute these integrated workflows–whether using your own custom-designed QIAseq DNA panels, or pre-built catalog panels. You will also gain an understanding and appreciation of the true value that comes from using all NGS components from a single supplier, who provides support for every aspect of the NGS workflow.


Part 1: Designing, analyzing and interpreting variants using custom-designed QIAseq DNA Panels

Presenter: Raed Samara, Ph.D., Associate Director, Product Management, QIAGEN

This second webinar will describe how to design your own custom QIAseq DNA Panel using QIAGEN’s free GeneGlobe Design and Analysis Hub.  We will also describe how custom panels can be easily incorporated into the QIAseq integrated workflow with minimal effort, using a graphical interface and without the need for coding or scripting.  This webinar will highlight the adaptability of the integrated workflow to address your specific target regions of interest.
