2 Napoli 4 dicembre 2015 Università Degli Studi di Napoli Federico II Dipartimento di Sanità Pubblica Meeting Director: Giancarlo Troncone Centro Congressi Federico II Via Partenope Napoli IV Molecular Cytopathology Focus on Next Generation Sequencing in Cytopathology Until recently, cytological samples were only tested by sequential single-gene mutational tests. Next generation sequencing, matched with multiplex capture of targeted gene regions and analysed by sophisticated bioinformatics tools, enables the simultaneous detection of multiple mutations in multiple genes. By the development of miniaturized technology and of benchtop sequencers it is not unlikely that NGS will soon be adopted for routine molecular diagnostics, including cytological samples. The IV MOLECULAR CYTOPATHOLOGY meeting addresses (1) the most relevant methodological and technical aspects of the NGS analysis workflow and the diverse platforms available; (2) the issues related to daily practice implementation, namely, the cytological sample requirement and the validation procedures; and (3) the opportunities that NGS offers in different fields of cytopathology, to increase mutation detection sensitivity in paucicellular smears and to extend the analysis to a larger number of gene regions.
