The high interest and rapid uptake of next-generation sequencing in the clinic speaks to the promise of this technology as a valuable adjunct for optimizing therapeutic treatment, yet much of this promise remains untapped. The challenge associated with establishing a regulatory framework stems from the lack of available standards to help establish the safety and effectiveness of this technology, and from the lack of high quality, public databases with data curated from validated methods for use in clinical decision making

Learning Objectives

Explain recent efforts by regulatory bodies, academia, and regulated industry to curate data from this technology and use it for regulatory decision making.
