Reveal all classes of structural variants using Bionano’s optical genome mapping Stratys™ System. Explore the Stratysphere!

Moving Forward Together

Let’s get ready to reconnect in Orlando, Florida! We’re on a mission to change the way the world sees the genome with genome mapping systems, nucleic acid purification solutions, analysis software, and clinical testing services. Come explore the genomic variation continuum, from SNVs to whole chromosomes, through our solutions. Together, we can reveal more variation that matters in cancer research.


This year’s AACR Annual Meeting conference offers multiple opportunities to hear how optical genome mapping (OGM) from Bionano is uncovering cancer genomic variation that other methods can’t. Come and learn how we’re impacting oncology research.

During this workshop, expert speakers will detail the utility of OGM across several cancer therapy development applications, featuring exciting scientific data from new studies.

The presentation will include how OGM enables:

  • Comprehensive characterization of structural variants in the genome
  • Identification and characterization of cancer biomarkers to enable better personalized therapy approaches
  • Drug screening on leukemia research samples
  • Detection of hidden structural variants involving TP53 in clinical trials
  • Characterization of homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) across breast and ovarian tumor research samples and stratification of cases based on HRD status
