José-Mario Capo-Chichi PhD, FCCMG, FACMG

José-Mario Capo-Chichi

Clinical Molecular Geneticist/Staff Scientist, Department of Clinical Laboratory Genetics, Genome Diagnostics, Laboratory Medicine Program, University Health Network, Ontario, Canada

Dr Capo-Chichi’s interests includes improvement of traditional molecular genetics approaches and development of novel diagnostic tests, particularly in cancer genetics, using high-throughput technologies like next-generation sequencing (NGS).

In this AMP 2022 session, Dr. Jose Mario Capo-Chichi shares his experience evaluating KMT2A- PTDs detection utilising three technologies; the SureSeq™ NGS panel with KMT2A specific probes engineered by OGT, an MLPA assay, and Optical Genome Mapping (OGM).

SureSeq Myeloid NGS panels coupled with OGT’s Interpret NGS software provide robust detection of KMT2A-PTDs.
