The development of new sequencing technologies, adoption of microarray techniques and publication of guidelines for unclassified variant interpretation are contributing to the need for training in bioinformatics for laboratory scientists. Hence, bioinformatics has been identified by the Clinical Molecular Genetics Society (CMGS) and Association for Clinical Cytogenetics (ACC) as an area of laboratory competence that needs to be addressed.
Bioinformatics for Genetics Scientists and Clinical GeneticistsIn partnership with The Nowgen Centre, the NGRLs are running two-day national courses in bioinformatics for clinical genetic scientists and clinical geneticists. The courses have been developed in response to calls from the diagnostic genetics community for the need for training in these technologies as the requirements of laboratories continue to change.
