Integrated Pipeline Reports (IPR)

IPR is a web-based graphical interface that provides clinicians a summary of the genomic results.

To learn more, please see the Platform for Oncogenomic Reporting and Interpretation (PORI) page for a live demo and videos on various sections of IPR to help new users in navigating the system including: ​​​​​

Online resources

Free, open-access online educational material manually curated for health professionals.

repository of genomics and health impact information compiled by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Resources include a searchable knowledge base, glossary, weekly updates and video clips on genomics, reports and publications, podcasts and videos as well as information on genomic testing.

The Genetics/Genomics Competency Center (G2C2) is a project funded and maintained by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The website offers free high quality educational resources aimed at providing health professionals and practitioners with self-directed learning in genetics and genomics. The website includes an online repository of educational materials, peer-reviewed collections, resources mapped to specific genomics competencies, as well as resources searchable by discipline/profession, genomic topics, and societies or organizations.

The genome information and resource centre hosted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) of the National Library of Medicine (NLM).

Nature Collection: Cancer Genomics, From Bench to Bedside: A comprehensive collection of articles from Nature Reviews Genetics, Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology and Nature Reviews Cancer. The collection covers all topics, bench-to-bedside, relating to cancer genomics. Articles and review papers can be accessed free by researchers, clinicians and members of the general public.

The Genomics Education Programme is an online learning portal hosted by the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). The website offers online courses in genomics, bioinformatics, whole genome sequencing and tumour assessment along with education and training resources for clinicians and practitioners. Courses are free for certain UK-based users and pay-to-access for all other users. Educational videos are also available here.

Healio is an in-depth clinical information website providing information and resources on a variety of health topics. The website offers a number of useful genomics resources for clinicians and oncologists including videos, tumor boards and genomics learning modules. The learning modules are self-paced and include the following topics: genomics primer, whole genome sequencing, genomic medicine in clinical practice, tumor board cases (case-based learning), pathology assessment of tumor tissue, and collaborative care.

Genetics Education Canada, curated by University professors in Ontario and funded by the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) with in-kind support from Mount Sinai Hospital, Sinai Health Systems in Ontario.

Adventures in genomics web portal, hosted by the Illumina Scientific Affairs team, provides video-based learning on topics related to genomics and cancer. Access Illumina's video hub for hundreds of free educational videos, including a five part genomics 101 series
