From the 2019 Joint Annual Meeting (June 25, 2019)
Presented by Heather Flanagan-Steet, PhD
With increasing numbers of cases where DNA sequencing has uncovered genetic variants whose significance is unclear, there is a growing need to functionally analyze the impact of the identified variant. This session will discuss cell- and animal-based approaches that can be used to determine a variant’s significance.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to
- Summarize animal based approaches for functional studies.
- Identify scenarios where functional studies may be needed.
- Describe multiple genomic approaches for functional studies.
