Mastermind Accelerates Variant Curation for Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Ion AmpliSeq Comprehensive Cancer and Inherited Cancer Panels

With the initial release of Mastermind, we have indexed the medical literature to cover the 409 genes in Thermo Fisher’s Ion AmpliSeq Comprehensive Cancer Panel and 134 genes in the Ion AmpliSeq Inherited Cancer Panel.

In developing Mastermind, we have spent the last three years indexing 3.3 million full-text articles and found every disease-gene-variant combination discussed in the literature covering somatic cancer, hereditary cancer, cardiomyopathy, and infertility. This includes covering all literature for the genes from ThermoFisher’s Ion AmpliSeq comprehensive cancer panel and Ion AmpliSeq Inherited Cancer Research Panel.

Mastermind has found all the variants cited in the literature associated with each of these specific cancer and gene combinations to help accelerate variant curation of VUSs found in these genes.
