Genomenon Partners with enGenome to Improve Variant Interpretation Accuracy and Speed
ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Genomenon announced a partnership with enGenome, which includes integration of the Mastermind Genomic Search Engine into the eVai Variant Interpretation platform. eVai users can now preview the number of published articles related to their search and easily link out to view the evidence in Mastermind.
Genomenon’s Mastermind is the world’s only comprehensive genomic search engine, connecting patient’s genomic data with evidence from the scientific literature - a key requirement in analyzing a patient’s DNA in precision medicine for cancer and genetic diseases. Mastermind has indexed over 7.5 million full text articles and 1.5 million supplemental data sets and covers over 6.1 million variants found in the medical literature.
By combining artificial intelligence with ACMG-AMP guidelines, eVai classifies and prioritizes every genomic variant for pathogenicity, suggesting all the possible related genetic diagnoses. The accurate prioritization combined with an unique and intuitive interface allows researchers to focus on the smallest interesting set of variants.
“Integrating Mastermind into eVai gives our users access to the premier source of genomic association data, which is an essential element of variant interpretation.” Said Dr. Ettore Rizzo, CEO of enGenome. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Genomenon in this way, particularly since we both use A.I. in ground-breaking ways.”
“We’re excited to partner with enGenome to put the most comprehensive and up-to-date genomic research in the hands of geneticists and researchers performing genomic analysis.” said Mike Klein, CEO of Genomenon. “Our relationship extends Mastermind’s global reach, and coupled with eVai, provides significant value in cutting turnaround time and increasing diagnostic yield for genetic labs.”
Genomenon is a genomic health IT company that connects patient DNA with the billions of dollars spent on research to help doctors diagnose and cure cancer patients and babies with rare diseases.
The Mastermind Genomic Search Engine is used by hundreds of genetic labs worldwide to accelerate diagnosis, increase diagnostic yield, and assure repeatability in reporting genetic testing results.
Mastermind Genomic Landscapes inform pharmaceutical and bio-pharma companies on precision medicine development, deliver genomic biomarkers for clinical trial target selection, and support CDx regulatory submissions with empirical evidence.
Genomenon was named 2020 Global Company of the Year in Clinical Genomics Interpretation by Frost & Sullivan.
