San Diego, CA – The FDNA team is excited to be back at the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) Annual Meeting, October 16-20 in San Diego and tell you more about how Face2Gene facilitates the sharing of phenotypic information with labs for improved NGS analysis. To learn more, attend our exhibitor education event, swing by our booth (#720) or visit our partners— see below for details. Interested in scheduling a meeting with a member of our team? Contact us! Or stop by booth #720 during exhibition hours to learn more about Face2Gene. We look forward to seeing you in a few days!
Exhibitor Education Event | Face2Gene Workshop: Next-Generation Phenotyping Speeds Molecular Diagnostics and Genomic Discovery
Friday, October 19, 12:30 – 1:45 PM
San Diego Convention Center, Room 28E (Upper Level)
Learn about the benefits to clinicians, labs, and researchers of sharing patient phenotype information and Face2Gene analysis with genetic testing labs. The talk will kick off with a guided workshop of the Face2Gene CLINIC application, led by Sarah Savage, MS, CGC, Director of Product Engagement at FDNA. It will then segue into a presentation by Dr. Peter Krawitz about how labs can use this information in their analysis, followed by Dr. Karen Gripp speaking to her use of Face2Gene in research. The talk will wrap up with a Q&A panel— so come prepared with your questions.
- Peter Krawitz, MD, PhD – Director, Institute for Genomic Statistic and Bioinformatics, University of Bonn & Chief Data Science Officer, FDNA
- Karen Gripp, MD – Chief, Division of Medical Genetics, Department of Pediatrics, A.I. Dupont Hospital & Chief Medical Officer, FDNA

Learn More About Face2Gene LABS
Accurate molecular interpretation requires comprehensive phenotype data. Visit the FDNA booth (#720) to learn how Face2Gene is a place for clinicians to share, and labs to use structured phenotypic information for NGS analysis.
The benefit to CLINIC users:
- Improved diagnostic yield
- Efficient & secure data sharing
- Better test selection
The benefit to LAB users:
- Improved diagnostic yield
- Streamlined process, saving your time and the clinician’s time
