BIONANO PRESENTS: A World Premiere Celebration Honoring You, the Stars of Genomics



Please join us for our corporate satellite session where scientific experts will present on identification of hidden structural variants and the implementation of optical genome mapping (OGM) applications for hematological neoplasms and developmental disorders. A deep dive into Bionano’s sample to answer product workflow, along with the highly anticipated LIVE announcement of the grand prize winner of the Bionano Innovator Research Grant 2023.  

Sponsored Session

Rare Diseases and Beyond: Optical Genome Mapping Applications in Cytogenomics and Gene Editing.

  • Date

    Sunday, 11 June 2023

  • Time

    08.30 – 10.00 BST

  • Location

    Dochart Room
    (in-person & virtual)

Alka Chaubey, Bionano’s Chief Medical Officer, will lead the discussion on Bionano’s product workflow innovation and an exciting announcement on the grand prize recipient for the Bionano Innovator Research Grant 2023.

This session will feature four invited speakers presenting the utility of OGM in the fields of rare genetic diseases, hematological malignancies, and cell line quality control.

Alexander Hoischen, PhD  |  Radboud University Medical Center (Netherlands)

“Identification of hidden structural variants in rare diseases”

  • Gain insights how OGM allowed the identification of structural variants in unsolved rare disease cases, including singleton cases, multiple family members and trios, and helped prioritizing possible novel candidate disease loci.

 Martine Doco-Fenzy, MD, PhD  |  CHU de Nantes (France)

“OGM contribution to the Etiological Diagnosis of Developmental disorders, experience of CHU Nantes Genetic Department”

  • Discover results obtained with OGM in cases presenting malformation syndromes with or without intellectual disability (MSID), following cytogenetic and sequencing techniques that previously failed to identify causative variants.

Katrina Rack, PhD  |  UZ Leuven (Belgium)

“Implementation of OGM into the diagnostic workflow for haematological neoplasms – a laboratory experience”

  • Learn how OGM is applied in conjunction with karyotyping to identify pathogenic SVs in hematological malignancy disease samples, such as ALL and AML.

Rachel Steeg, PhD  |  European Bank for induced Pluripotent Stem Cells EBiSC (UK)

“Standardising and qualifying iPSC lines from diverse sources”

  • Find out how to efficiently standardize iPSCs from different diseases, tissue types, and research groups while maximizing the quality, type and breadth of cells and data available to researchers with a new processing pipeline.

Poster Sessions


If you’re curious about OGM and wondering how it connects to your work, stop by and talk to one of our dedicated team members. We can’t wait to share our enthusiasm for technology that is moving clinical research forward in remarkable ways. 

Booth #330

Visit the Bionano booth #330 to check out our Saphyr system and ask how our newest products in our nucleic acid purification and analysis software portfolios create a solution-based optical genome mapping (OGM) workflow.

Book a personal presentation with our OGM specialists in our hospitality meeting room to ask questions about how your current workflow can be elevated with Bionano’s solutions and OGM workflow, while enjoying light snacks and drinks.
