Bionano Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNGO) today announced its participation at the Spanish Society of Hematology (SEHH) 2022 Conference, with six scientific presentations from independent researchers covering a wide variety of the cancer genomics landscape, highlighting the application of optical genome mapping (OGM) for hematologic malignancies and cancer research.

SEHH 2022 is a three-day conference dedicated to basic, preclinical and translational cancer research. SEHH sessions will take place October 6-8, 2022 in Barcelona, Spain. Six separate scientific presentations delivered by faculty and clinicians from Spanish hematology institutes, cancer centers and hospitals will illustrate the application of Bionano’s OGM solutions in blood cancer research areas including leukemias, lymphomas and myelofibrosis.

Scientific presentations on OGM include:
