Session Synopsis: NGS-based liquid biopsy assays have great promise for multiple clinical applications, but challenges associated with detection sensitivity, bioinformatic analysis and validation must be overcome in order to drive routine clinical adoption. Join leaders in the field as we discuss the progress, potential and remaining obstacles of using NGS for this application.
