View Only- P3EGS – Expanding Exomes to the Underserved
Hosted by UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital
About this course
During the ACMG Genomics Case Conferences, a team from the University of California, San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital will present and lead discussions on an intriguing, complex and/or difficult patient cases in the area of genomics. The primary focus of these case conferences will be on the adaptation of exome or genome sequencing technology in clinical care.

Session Description:
During this webinar, we will present a summary of the P3EGS program at UCSF that seeks to assess the clinical utility of exome sequencing in an underserved and underrepresented population.
Course Description
Learning objectives
At the conclusion of the series, participants should be able to:
1. Describe the clinical utility of whole exome/whole genome sequencing tests
2. Identify clinical indications for whole exome/whole genome sequencing
3. List determinants used to assess the probability of a variant’s pathogenicity
4. Elaborate on the importance of pre-test counseling and consent

Session learning objectives

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
1. Recognize the barriers to obtaining genetic testing in the underserved
2. Describe how representation in variant databases differs with ethnicity
3. Discuss variables affecting clinical utility of exome sequencing
