Benchmarking, harmonization and Standardization
• Benchmarking of variant interpretation, especially VUSes
• Consent for NGS
• The perfect requisition

Structural variants
• Benchmarking of SV callers.
• Benchmarking of the SV nomenclature
• Sharing of structural variants

Bioinformatic tools development
• Matchmaker Exchange status update
• Uploading variant classifications to external databases
• Data compression
• Structural variants tools

NGS for Cancer Diagnostics
• Pipelines for somatic sequencing: Technology choice, processes, and bioinformatics
• Verification and Validation approaches

Seed topic:
• IVDR - how to address the upcoming regulations?

...and we will try and arrange an informal Duckup-session, inviting participants to share their professional failures - the projects or plans that crash and burn - so that we all can learn from them!
