LifeOmic Streamlines Genomic Interpretation of Whole Genomes with Mastermind
LifeOmic is presenting “Faster, Comprehensive Variant Curation For Whole Genome Sequencing” on Wednesday October 18th at the ASHG conference to formally announce its partnership with Genomenon. Tom Barber, CSO at LifeOmic, will present how LifeOmic is using DNA sequencing, big data analytics and Mastermind to advance the development of precision medicine.
LifeOmic has signed an agreement with Genomenon to use the Mastermind Genomic Search Engine to streamline clinical interpretation of LifeOmic’s genome sequencing data. LifeOmic is annotating disease-causing variants with citations from relevant biomedical literature using Mastermind. By providing immediate insight into published scientific literature, Mastermind speeds the variant interpretation process to help scientists at LifeOmic decide which variants are likely associated with disease and which are likely benign.
