In this talk Dr. Plon will review the five year experience of using whole exome sequencing tests in clinical medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. She will also describe: - The range of mutational mechanisms and diagnoses identified in the diagnosis of children and adults suspected of having an underlying Mendelian disorder - The results of the first prospective clinical trial of cancer and germline exome sequencing for newly diagnosed childhood cancer patients performed at the Texas Children’s Cancer Center - The differences in results between these two distinct patient populations demonstrate the need to study clinical genomic platforms in a variety of medical settings
