NGS-Based HLA Typing

At the morning session, the ins & outs of NGS-Based HLA Typing are covered, including workflows, basic data analysis and a multicenter comparative study of different NGS platforms.

In the afternoon, learn to perform effective NGS data analysis through case study during the advanced data analysis session. You can even send in NGS data of your most difficult samples* a few weeks before EFI to maximise efficiency and challenge us.

*Anonymized data only. You can anonymize data by changing the names of fastq-files.

 

Who should attend?
The morning session is suitable for everyone with a basic understanding of HLA and DNA sequencing.
The afternoon session proceeds the morning session with in-depth data analysis. This session can be attended independently of the morning session by the average NGS user.

Program

Morning: Comprehensive basic training  
   Workflows for HLA typing  
   Platform comparison study  
   Hands-on data analysis  
Afternoon: Advanced data analysis  
   Data analysis tips & tricks  
   Trouble shooting  
   Case studies

Chimerism Monitoring

Learn how to accurately monitor chimerism in a recipient after transplantation using quantitative PCR (qPCR). Because of the high sensitivity of the technique, relapse can be detected at an earlier stage.

The program includes the principles of chimerism monitoring using qPCR and training on data analysis utilizing a software program specifically developed as a laboratory and data management assistant.

Who should attend?
This teaching session is ideal for all those already working with Chimerism Monitoring already, novices and experts alike.

Program  
   Principles of qPCR  
   Monitoring workflow  
   Hands-on data analysis
