Geneseeq Technology Inc., along with our clinical collaborators will present new data at the 2020 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Virtual Scientific Program, which will held from May 29 to May 31. Twenty of our studies have been selected by the ASCO committee, including one oral presentation and eight poster presentations covering topics on advances in genomic profiling technology, novel biomarker and cancer genomic discoveries. Geneseeq will also participate in the virtual exhibit that launches on May 29 with the Virtual Scientific Program, and continue to be available online until the end of August. Talk to our exhibit staff in real-time for more information about our products and services. 

Highlights of our studies include:  

  • Avoiding unnecessary genetic testing of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) from the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with metastatic tumors, by utilizing a predictive regression model based on phenotypic characteristics of brain metastases (Oral #2507); 
  • Genomic profiling of circulating tumor DNA from liquid biopsy samples using Geneseeq’s targeted panels to help with minimal residual disease monitoring and detecting cancer recurrence/metastasis in early stage colorectal and lung cancer (Poster #4079 and #3537); 
  • Utilizing Geneseeq’s 425-gene panel, GeneseeqPrime®, in a cohort of 8619 lung cancer patients to help inform differential genomic features and evolutionary patterns in metastatic tumors from primary lung tumors that show metastasis in a site-specific manner (Poster #9584); 
  • in silico and structural insights from a molecular dynamic simulation-based model of the mutant EGFR protein helps predict its sensitivity to EGFR TKI in rare EGFR mutations (Poster #9531);
  • Discovery of ERBB2 exon 16-skipping alteration as a novel resistance mechanism against EGFR TKI treatment in lung cancer, highlighting the importance of comprehensive genomic profiling in revealing drug-resistance mechanisms (Poster #9528); 
  • Kinome fusions and the genomic instability landscape of lung cancer (Poster #9534). 

The following is a list of our studies that will be presented at the meeting. To access full abstracts for more details, please visit:
