John van der Oost Announced as Plenary Speaker


John van der Oost is group leader of the Bacterial Genetics Groups in the Laboratory of Microbiology at Wageningen University. Professor van der Oost is considered pioneer of the “CRISPR revolution” for his fundamental work in the ground-breaking CRISPR-cas technique, and his group has founded methods to remove, add or alter specific genes with accuracy.

 

Earlybird selection of short talks from submitted abstracts.
Outstanding abstracts will be selected for presentation as an Invited short talk earlier than the regular notification date.

Deadline for Earlybird submissions:
Friday 13th December.
Abstract submission
If your work is selected you will be informed by Friday 17th January 2020. We hope that this opportunity will help give people plenty of time to secure funding and arrange visas to attend the Congress.

Pre-analytics and tumor heterogeneity

When dealing with pre-analytics for tissues, it is often that case that tissue heterogeneity, and particularly tumor heterogeneity, is not taken into account as a preliminary condition for obtaining reproducible results in molecular analysis at the diagnostics and clinical research levels. It is well known that when sampling tumor tissues in different areas, for example the border or the central area of the tumor, different genes are expressed and, due to polyclonality in most tumors, different areas can have different DNA and epigenetic alterations. For this reason, it is extremely important to establish and standardize specific tissue sampling protocols for molecular extraction as well as in situ molecular methods. A correct approach to heterogeneity is the basis for a more reproducible and exchangeable type of molecular analysis that can provide useful information at the prognostic and predictive levels. Heterogeneity should also be taken into consideration during cancer treatment, since therapy modifies the clonal composition of tumors. Here, the different types of tumor heterogeneity and the improper pre-analytical conditions in tissue processing that can generate heterogeneous artefacts are described.
