Workshop Organisers:  Gunnar Houge, Heidi Rehm
Additional speakers: Leslie Biesecker & Leslie Biesecker

About the workshop:

In 2015, the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG), in collaboration with the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) published detailed standards for evaluating evidence and classifying variants according to pathogenicity for Mendelian disease and standardized the terms for classification. These standards are now routinely used by both the clinical and research communities. However, aspects of the standards are still challenging to apply and differences in variant classification can occur even when using the same standard. To address these issues, the Sequencing Variant Interpretation working group of the Clinical Genome Resource (ClinGen) has been working to evolve the standards, providing additional guidance on the application of individual evidence criteria, as well as guiding ClinGen’s Variant Curation Expert Panels that develop disease-specific specifications for sets of gene. Resources can be found here:
https://clinicalgenome.org/working-groups/sequence-variant-interpretation/

ACMG has now convened a new committee, adding ClinGen as a third contributing organization, to publish the next set of standards for variant classification. Anticipated to be released in 2022, the committee has been hard at work developing the new framework. Leslie Biesecker and Steven Harrison, co-chairs of the new ACMG/ClinGen/AMP committee, will give a preview of the modifications anticipated in the new guideline and will give attendees the opportunity to provide feedback on the draft framework through audience poll questions and open discussion.

In addition, Gunnar Houge will also solicit feedback through audience poll questions on the work of an ad hoc working group in ESHG (Johan den Dunnen, Andreas Laner, Sebahattin Cirak, Nicole de Leeuw, Hans Scheffer and Gunnar Houge) that proposed a stepwise ABC system for classification of any type of genetic variant, with a molecular (A), clinical (B) and standard comment (C ) arm, that can be an add-on or alternative to the  2015 ACMG/AMP guideline. This system can be found here:

About the workshop:

We invite all those working in the field of syndrome diagnosis, and those who wish to learn more about the art and science of Dysmorphology, to attend this session. In view of this year’s virtual ESHG format please participate by e-mailing short PowerPoint presentations (see specifications below) of your distinctive unsolved cases or your instructive solved cases until May 1, 2021 to:
sofia.douzgou.houge@helse-bergen.no 
If you require an nhs.net e-mail address please e-mail to: jillclayton-smith@nhs.net 

We will select 6 cases that will be presented for discussion ‘live’ during the online workshop. Even if you do not have cases to bring, we also encourage workshop attendees to share their knowledge of dysmorphology and broader genetic mechanisms by participation in the case discussions via the chat. As we move further into the genomic era we anticipate more discussion around variant interpretation and so we would also welcome experts in this area to join us.
We also welcome “solved” cases that you may have presented as unknowns at the ESHG in previous years, but where you now have an answer. These are very interesting and instructive for the audience.

Presentation Format:

Presentations should include no more than 6 slides and you should aim to present your case in 3 minutes, leaving some time for discussion. Slides should cover the main points of the history, include good quality clinical photos of the most distinctive features and give results of investigations undertaken. Although we do not necessarily expect every patient to have had whole genome or exome sequencing, cases must have undergone a reasonable diagnostic workup before presentation and permission should have been sought from patients/parents for presentation.

We look forward to seeing you!

About the workshop:

An awareness of the ethical aspects of genomics and its implementation in health care is essential for trainee and experienced clinicians, scientists and researchers. The UK’s Genethics Forum (established in 2000) helps genomic professionals identify and discuss ethical issues in their practice, develop their skills in resolving these and contribute to the improvement of ethical decision-making by sharing good practice.

About the workshop:

Genetic variation between individuals results in a range of human phenotypes, from differences in the immune response against transmissible diseases, such as COVID-19, to rare developmental disorders. Understanding the effect of genetic variants upon genes associated with phenotypes is underpinned by a high quality geneset. The Ensembl/GENCODE geneset contains expert annotation of evidence based transcripts. The annotation of clinically important genes is prioritised as part of the MANE project (Matched Annotation from NCBI and EMBL-EBI) where MANE Select transcripts and additional MANE Plus Clinical transcripts are agreed with the RefSeq team to provide a resource for variant reporting. Additionally, we have updated the annotation of ~300 human genes associated with SARS-CoV-2  infection, such as ACE2, to improve annotation of alternative promoter usage and splicing.

The Ensembl Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) toolset allows fast and flexible annotation of genetic variants to predict functional consequences in the context of the Ensembl/GENCODE geneset, allowing further variant filtering, prioritisation and reporting using the MANE Select and MANE Plus Clinical transcript sets.

This workshop will guide you through the Ensembl/GENCODE and MANE annotation process, allowing you to experience the challenges involved in annotation and transcript selection. You will also learn how to use the Ensembl VEP to map genetic variants onto Ensembl/GENCODE transcripts and other Ensembl annotation including regulatory regions and regions of evolutionary conservation to determine their likely functional effects and filter to prioritise variants.

In order to follow along the hands-on aspects of this workshop, including exploring online databases and exercises, you will need to bring a laptop to this session. Workshop materials, including slides, demonstration screenshots, exercises, sample files and solutions will be made available before the workshop and will remain permanently online at the Ensembl training portal:  https://training.ensembl.org

About the workshop:

Gene editing has stirred hope for finding cures for serious genetic disorders. As for germline gene editing, ESHG stated that it is premature, many countries prohibit research, there is international support for a moratorium, and global initiatives for guidance development and public debate have been initiated. On the other hand, for somatic gene editing animal experiments and human trials show excellent results. In this workshop we discuss the state of the art and prospects for human germline gene editing and somatic editing. For which disorders cures are becoming conceivable? What technical challenges and ELSI issues lie ahead?
