Meet Genomenon at NSGC and ASHG

Come meet the Genomenon team at two of the industry’s upcoming events and learn about how to overcome time consuming, burdensome PubMed and Google searches for variant curation!
The team from Genomenon will be onsite this week at the National Society of Genetic Counselors conference this week in Columbus, Ohio.
The NSGC event starts this Wednesday and will host over 2,000 genetic counselors from all over the country. The show centers around general education, breakthroughs in research and latest developments, while providing many opportunities to network with peers in the industry.

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.
