Reproductive Health Science presented two posters at PGDIS in May 2016

May 23, 2016 -

Reproductive Health Science (RHS) had two poster presentations at the recent Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis International Society (PGDIS) Congress held in Bologna in May 2016, generating a great deal of interest.  A total of 85 abstracts were submitted at the congress, with only three accepted from Australia.

Our first poster 'Combined PGD and PGS: Enrichment of PGD genes during whole genome amplification', was prepared by the RHS scientific team.  The aim of this study was to determine the feasibility of synchronous whole genome amplification and gene specific amplification by PCR for combined PGD for monogenic disorders and PGS for aneuploidy utilising aCGH or NGS. 

The second poster 'Combined PGD/PGS Using Whole Genome Sequencing in a Model of Blastomere and TrophectodermBiopsy' was prepared in conjunction with the University of NSW and the Garvan Institute of Medical Research.  The aim of this study was to investigate the potential for combined preimplantation genetic diagnosis and screening of inherited and de novo mutations using whole genome sequencing.
