This new Wellcome Trust workshop aims to meet the training needs of genetic counsellors as they upskill in response to the introduction of genomic sequencing in the clinic. The programme will address the fundamental aspects of genomics and bioinformatics that underpin clinical practice, focusing on communication issues relevant to all practising genetic counsellors. Attendees will have the opportunity to work with sequence data and explore how it is created, analysed and delivered. The workshop is suitable for practising genetic counsellors and genetic nurses. It has been designed so that it is relevant for genetic counsellor registration CPD. To optimize discussions and interactions, numbers are limited; therefore, early registration is advised. We may have to limit the number of places allocated to each centre to increase diversity. Topics will include: Genetic to genomic counselling – challenges and opportunities Sequencing and bioinformatics – what does the genetic counsellor need to know? Choosing what to test for and taking consent Sequencing analysis and interpretation Visualising and reporting genomic data – background for the genetic counsellor Scientific programme committee Georgie Hall St Mary’s Hospital Manchester, UK Marion McAllister Cardiff University, UK Anna Middleton Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK Christine Patch Guys’ and St Thomas’ Hospitals, UK Heather Skirton Plymouth University, UK Confirmed speakers John Burn Newcastle University, UK Sian Ellard University of Exeter Medical School, UK Helen Firth Cambridge University Hospitals, UK Georgie Hall St Mary’s Hospital Manchester, UK Alastair Kent Genetic Alliance, UK Mike Simpson King’s College London, UK Nick Lench Congenica Ltd, UK Anna Middleton Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK Kelly Ormond Stanford University, USA Christine Patch Guys’ and St Thomas’ Hospitals, UK Caroline Wright Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK Phil Jones Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK Jawahar Swaminathan Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK Dom McMullan West Midlands Regional Genetics Laboratories, Birmingham, UK
