AMP Horizons Optical Genome Mapping: About its Potential in Routine Human Genetic Diagnostics

 Optical Genome Mapping: About its Potential in Routine Human Genetic Diagnostic

This contains the webinar and continuing education credit (CME and CMLE) 


Optical genome mapping (OGM) is an upcoming diagnostic method that allows the discovery of structural variants difficult to detect by other means. With a workload acceptable for a routine laboratory, OGM is able to acquire high-resolution breakpoints of balanced and unbalanced structural variants. However, as any other novel technique, its associated capabilities and limitations are unfamiliar to the majority of the scientific community, which deters potential users.

Learn here about the capabilities of OGM. Find out if it is a useful complement to the diagnostic objectives of your facility.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the capabilities and limitations of optical genome mapping
  • Evaluate fields of molecular and cytogenetic diagnostics that could profit from optical genome mapping
  • Develop diagnostic pipelines where optical genome mapping contributes to improved patient care

Accreditation Statements
AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP). The American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The ASCP designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This continuing medical laboratory education activity is recognized by the American Society for Clinical Pathology for 1.0 hours of CMLE credit. ASCP CMLE credit hours are acceptable for the ASCP Board of Certification (BOC) Certification Maintenance Program (CMP). CMLE credit hours meet the continuing education requirements for the ASCP Board of Certification Credential Maintenance Program (CMP) and state relicensure requirements for laboratory personnel. Participants should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
