Welcome to the Fellowship-in-Service-Examination (FISE) 2019 brought to you by the Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Program Directors and the Association for Molecular Pathology.

These exam questions were written by MGP faculty from many MGP-Fellowship institutions and cover the range of topics listed below. For each examination, a total of 45 questions populated from a question bank of nearly 250 questions will be randomly generated. At the end of the examination, you will receive your results along with the correct responses, an explanation of the correct choice, and references for further information. You will only receive this information for each question answered, so you are encouraged to answer all questions, regardless of whether or not you know the correct answer.

You are welcome to take the exam as many times as you like, but please note that participants will be charged a small administrative fee ($25 for AMP members, $50 for non-members) each time they take the exam.

Good luck!

    Description:

    Bioinformatics pipelines are integral components of next-generation sequencing (NGS) assays. Until recently, a lack of guidelines caused significant variability in how pipelines were validated in the molecular genetics and pathology community. To address this important issue, Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) with liaison representation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP), and the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) released Standards and Guidelines for Validating Next-Generation Sequencing Bioinformatics Pipelines in January 2018. In this webinar, Dr. Somak Roy and Dr. Alexis Carter will highlight some of the important recommendations.

    Description:

    Recent advances in long-read sequencing technologies allows for a more complete identification of DNA and RNA associated with human disease. Two talks will be given to describe a few applications of these technologies.

    The first talk will present nanopore sequencing of full-length cDNA from chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) with and without mutation in a splicing factor, SF3B1. SF3B1 is one of the most frequently mutated genes in and is associated with poor patient prognosis. While alternative splicing patterns caused by mutations in SF3B1 using short-read sequencing are known, identifying the full-length isoform changes may better elucidate the functional consequences of these mutations. The talk will describe a computational workflow for transcript analysis called FLAIR (Full-Length Alternative Isoform analysis of RNA), novel findings, and remaining challenges with long-read sequencing approaches for alternative splicing analysis.

    The second talk will present single-molecule real time sequencing of influenza. Infection by influenza virus can activate innate immune pathways that help control viral infection. However, these pathways are only rarely activated in single virus-infected cells. This webcast will describe how combining long-read sequencing with other single-cell techniques to determine how mutations in influenza virions affect whether infected cells activate innate immune pathways.

    Description:

    Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is used to interrogate large sets of genes in a diagnostic setting. Regions of high sequence homology are a major challenge and can lead to false-positive and false-negative diagnostic errors. This webinar will provide a perspective on how to deal with medically important genes that have high sequence homology in a diagnostic setting.

    In oncology, there are a variety of potential clinical applications for a minimally invasive blood test for DNA released from tumor cells. Such applications include detecting early stage disease, tracking response to therapy, prompt identification of disease relapse or recurrence, and recognition of clonal evolution.  Numerous small-scale studies have demonstrated that quantitation of mutations in circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) is feasible from the blood of cancer patients. The increased adoption of targeted cancer therapies underscores the need to augment invasive tissue biopsies with alternative detection methods that rapidly monitor treatment response. Although most studies have been proof of principle, ctDNA methods hold great promise in cancer diagnostics.

    Description:

    Next-generation sequencing technologies are actively applied in clinical oncology. Bioinformatics pipeline analysis is an integral part of this process; however, humans cannot yet realize the full potential of the highly complex output and the decision to include a variant in the final report remains challenging.  Machine learning is one approach to mine big data and derive models for decision-making.  Given that bioinformatics pipelines generate mostly structured, discrete data, the setting is ideal to assess a machine learning decision support system.  A decision support tool for variant reporting is a relevant approach to harness the next-generation sequencing bioinformatics pipeline output when the complexity of data interpretation exceeds human capabilities.  How can this be accomplished?  What are other use cases? What are the concrete steps for implementation?  In this upcoming webcast, Dr. Joe Lennerz from the Center for Integrated Diagnostics, Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School will address these questions.
