Mining the Genomic Literature for Evidence-based Panel Design
Dr. Schu from Q2 Solutions will present a reproducible method used to select the content for an AML gene panel by mining millions of full text genomic articles to identify disease-gene-variant relationships through Mastermind®. Q2 was able to develop a comprehensive list of genes associated with AML in the scientific literature to create an evidence-based gene panel in under a week.
