Genomics and Molecular Medicine Tools & Resources

 

Enhance your skills and knowledge in genomic medicine, the latest revolutionary diagnostic and treatment competency area.

The 2014 Cancer Genomics Resource List

Genomic sequencing for cancer is offered by many labs. Variability among the tests has created a complex, confusing environment. The compiled cancer genomics list includes next-generation sequencing (NGS) panels offered by 19 laboratories accompanied by annotations which includes 611 different genes for which NGS-based mutation testing is offered.

Pathology Resource Guides

The College of American Pathologists (CAP) offers comprehensive Pathology Resource Guides on Genomic Analysis and Molecular Diagnostics. These time-saving guides provide a comprehensive view of genomics resources, quick reference gene lists, select journal articles, and other relevant CAP resources. Do not miss the "Insights From Early Adopters" section in each guide to gain perspective from pioneering colleagues.

CAP members can get a complimentary subscription to the digital versions of all four guides. Printed publications of each guide are available for purchase by members and nonmembers.

Short Presentations in Emerging Concepts

Short Presentations in Emerging Concepts (SPECs) are a tool to help you establish yourself as a leader in personalized medicine in your community. Designed for pathologists, these short PowerPoint presentations focus on selected diseases where molecular tests play a key role in patient management today.

CAP members can get a complimentary subscription to the digital versions of the presentations. A printed publication of the compiled presentations and speaker notes is available for purchase by members and nonmembers.

Training Residents in Genomics

The Training Residents in Genomics (TRIG) Working Group has developed tools for teaching and promoting genomic pathology education. Designed by experts in medical education, molecular pathology, and clinical genetics, these resources are now available to enable residency programs to implement training locally.

Genetics/Genomics Competency Center for Education (G2C2) Physician Content

The mission of G2C2 is to provide high-quality educational resources for group instruction or self-directed learning in genetics/genomics by health care educators and practitioners. Browse the G2C2 site for professionally curated resources, classroom materials, and real-world examples.

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) Genetics and Genomics for Health Professionals page provides reliable, up-to-date genetics and genomics information related to patient management, curricular resources, new National Institutes of Health and NHGRI research activities, and ethical, legal and social issues.
