Due to travel restrictions between China and Australia we have had to cancel the the Bionano Seminar scheduled to be held at AIBN on Monday 10th February.

Both Decode and UQ Genomics apologize for the inconvenience and aim to reschedule the seminar for April- May.

We will provide an updated schedule as soon as it is available.

Bionano Genome Mapping Builds the Most Contiguous and Correct Genome Assemblies

The Bionano Genomics solution for whole genome optical mapping offers an extremely long-read technology, providing the ability to assemble chromosomearm length maps used to scaffold sequence contigs and correct assembly errors. Additionally, Bionano has unmatched sensitivity to identify all major types of structural variation.
Examples will be presented of how the Bionano Saphyr platform is helping to build the most complete and accurate genome assemblies, and how it compares to other scaffolding methods like Hi-C.


Next-Generation Cytogenomics: High-throughput Mapping of Structural Variation in Cancer and Genetic Disease

Bionano Genomics’ platform for whole genome mapping offers an extremely longread technology, providing unmatched sensitivity to detect structural variation, genome wide, at low cost. Our de novo maps can resolve complex repetitive regions, identify Copy Number Variations, and elucidate genome-wide structural variation like balanced/unbalanced translocations, inversions, and indels with much higher sensitivity and precision than sequencing-based methods. 
For heterogeneous cancer samples or mosaic patient cases, Bionano’s extremely high coverage depth allows for the detection of any type of structural variant with more than 90% sensitivity, present in as little as 5% of the cells, genome wide, and completely unbiased. 
Examples will be presented of how Bionano’s platform is helping provide a molecular diagnosis for patients with undiagnosed genetic disorders, and how it elucidates genomic rearrangements in cancer that are missed by NGS and cytogenetic methods. 

Speaker Bio: Dr. Yingying Wu is Scientific Affairs Manager at Bionano Genomics. Yingying is responsible for scientific and clinical communications between customers, and for integrating Bionano technology in the customers’ research. She received her B.A.Sc. degree from the China Pharmaceutical University and her Ph.D. from the Institute of Neuroscience, Shanghai Institutes for Biological Science, Chinese Academy of Science.
