29th AMBICON Pre-Conference Workshops 18th – 20th July 2022

About the workshop: Recent developments in molecular methods have revolutionized the detection and characterization of various genes in humans and microorganisms and aid in future research. Among these methods, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) has generated great benefits and allowed scientific advancements. PCR is an excellent technique for the rapid detection of biomarkers or therapeutic targets by amplifying the specific sequence of DNA. This workshop aims to outline the principles and applications of conventional PCR techniques in medical sciences. We will also discuss the indications, uses, and advantages of these techniques, as well as their advances in various medical areas. In addition to hands-on training, the on-topic lecture by subject experts allows the students to acquire theoretical knowledge about the methods.

About the Workshop: Though born healthy, most babies may have an underlying disorder that may be life-threatening or may lead to permanent mental retardation, if not detected immediately after birth. Screening of newborns will help in the early diagnosis and treatment of these disorders and thus prevent adverse outcomes in the baby. Newborn screening programs are mandatory in all developed countries, but unfortunately not so in our country. Prenatal screening with biochemical markers to detect the pregnant women at risk of carrying a fetus with trisomy as early as in the first trimester will be discussed in detail. The positive screen tests will be further confirmed by amniocentesis or chorionic villous sampling and carrying out karyotyping or fluorescent-in-situ hybridization to detect structural or numerical chromosomal disorders. This workshop aims to train the delegates on various tests that can be performed on newborns or pregnant women to identify the underlying disease condition, their interpretation, quality improvement, communicating with families and the public, and short- and long-term follow-up.

About the Workshop: In the last decade or so Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies have progressively seen a rising shift towards multiple fields including oncology, genetic disorders, and infectious diseases. It has been widely used for genetic testing and disease diagnosis, as well as in predictive, preventive, personalized, and participatory medicine approach. The associated costs have also dropped over the years. This also makes it important to create awareness on the fundamentals, theory and practical utility of the technology.

About the Workshop: Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LCMS/MS) is now widely used in clinical laboratories. It enables direct identification of molecules based on the mass- to-charge ratio as well as fragmentation patterns. It offers accurate and reliable results for challenging assays. Advantage of this technology is that we would be able to capture a multitude of information within a single assay. It also allows the detection of compounds at low and high concentrations without any additional sample preparation. This would facilitate analysis of large number of analytes in a single injection, reducing preanalytical steps required and enabling faster time to result. Despite the broad range of clinical applications, its adoption in various clinical laboratories has faced various obstacles probably due to lack of basic understanding of the clinical applications or skilled personnel. Hence this workshop aims to empower the biochemists across the country towards the working principles and the application of this technology in their clinical laboratories.

The AMBI in association with Sciex Center of Excellence would be organizing the workshop at the state-of-the-art facility in the industrial suburbs of Bengaluru which would allow participants to use and apply the technologies on advanced newborn screening, Bioavailability/Bioequivalence (BA/BE) Studies, Metabolomics studies

About the workshop: Flow cytometry technique is used to identify and quantify cell population in a heterogenous sample like blood, bone marrow or lymph. These cell subsets are measured by labelling population-specific proteins with a fluorescent tag on the cell surface. In clinical labs, immunophenotyping is useful in diagnosing haematological malignancies such as lymphomas and leukaemia. Specialised flow cytometers also can physically isolate the cells of interest in separate collection tubes that can later be used for research purposes. Two distinct types of cell death, apoptosis, and necrosis can be distinguished by flow cytometry on the basis of differences in morphological, biochemical and molecular changes occurring in the dying cells. This workshop aims to train the delegates on the basics of flow cytometry and utilising this technique for their research as well as routine clinical diagnostics.

Clinical Cytogenetics and Molecular Genetics
18th July 2022 to 20th July 2022

Clinical Cytogenetics

About the workshop : Chromosomal abnormalities are genetic aberrations involving a change in chromosome number or structure. Cytogenetics involves studying patient's chromosomes using prenatal, postnatal as well as cancer samples. The techniques employed in studying patient samples include conventional or classical chromosome studies such as routine karyotyping, high resolution banding, NOR staining, C-banding, etc. as well as high end molecular cytogenetic techniques like FISH, PRINS, SKY, mFISH & mBAND FISH. Analysis of the test results is done using appropriate software in the karyotyping and FISH workstation (Metasystem). This workshop aims at sharing knowledge and practical experience in basic cell culture and cytogenetic techniques.

Molecular Genetics

About the workshop : Genes are the basic unit of heredity. They carry genetic information in the form of DNA which can be translated into useful proteins to carry out cellular functions. DNA is made up of four bases (abbreviated A, T, C, and G) that are repeated many times throughout a genome and the particular order of this is a critical feature. The human genome, has 3 billion pairs of bases consisting of around 30,000 genes that code for proteins. Genetic disorders are due to alterations in the genome of an organism. A variation or change in the DNA sequence of a gene leads to altered protein that can no longer carry out its normal function, and hence results in a genetic disorder.

Molecular genetics is an investigative approach that involves the application of laboratory methods to investigate genetic disorders at the molecular level. The various techniques used to study the alterations in a gene include Polymerase chain reaction (PCR), DNA Sanger Sequencing and many more. PCR helps generate millions of copies of a specific segment of DNA and Sanger Sequencing "reads" each base of the DNA to find changes that may cause or affect risk for a disease. This workshop aims at covering basic molecular genetics techniques like DNA isolation from peripheral blood, PCR and Sanger Sequencing.
