Identification of Mismatch Repair Deficiency by Next-Generation Sequencing


This is part of the Molecular Pathology Competency Series which is composed of short videos focused on current topics on molecular pathology. 

At the end of this video, learners will be able to define mismatch repair deficiency, understand the strengths and weaknesses of using next-generation sequencing to detect mismatch repair deficiency as compared to traditional methods, and describe the clinical relevance of mismatch repair pathway testing.
