This product includes the webinar and SAM credit

Description: This webinar will act as an overview and update regarding the use of Tumor Mutational Burden (TMB) as a diagnostic and prognostic tool. Advances in massively parallel sequencing technologies has facilitated the large scale examination of the mutational profile of tumors. Best practices with regard to elaboration of these techniques is evolving as is the correlation of results with clinical outcomes. This presentation will provide additional information regarding the newest innovations as well as implications for TMB testing, interpretation, and reporting. Some clinical applications and challenges will be discussed.

Duration: 1 hr
