R&D VP, ArcherDX
Prior to ArcherDX, Josh joined Thermo Fisher Scientific, developing gene modulation tools including sequencing-based, high throughput shRNA screening techniques. As VP of R&D at ArcherDX, Josh leads a diverse team of molecular biologists, software engineers, and bioinformaticians in the development of Archer’s portfolio of assays and bioinformatics software.
Complex Variant Detection Using Anchored Multiplex PCR
Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP) is a target enrichment chemistry for NGS that can be used to identify complex mutations from FFPE and other clinical samples. We will review the detection of relevant gene fusions, copy number alterations, and other complex variants identified via AMP and the Archer Analysis pipeline.
