Genomics literacy training for multicultural healthcare workers
To further build core capabilities in genetic pathology within Queensland, Queensland Genomics partnered with Melbourne Genomics to deliver a two-day ‘hands on’ professional workshop on variant curation, with a focus on cancer genomics.
The workshop was attended by 63 participants who were clinicians, medical scientists and bioinformaticians working in cancer genomics.
Highlights of the workshop
The workshop included a series of short lectures, practical hands-on variant curation exercises and clinical reporting tips.
