Bainbridge, Erwin Frise, Albert Oriol, Luca Brunelli, Stephen F. Kingsmore & Mark Yandell Rapidly and efficiently identifying critically ill infants for whole genome sequencing (WGS) is a costly and challenging task currently performed by scarce, highly trained experts and is a major bottleneck for application of WGS in the NICU. There is a dire need for automated means to prioritize patients for WGS.

Steven Flygare, Edgar Javier Hernandez, Lon Phan, Barry Moore, Man Li, Anthony Fejes, Hao Hu, Karen Eilbeck, Chad Huff, Lynn Jorde, Martin G. Reese and Mark Yandell Read how VVP outperforms other methods to score genetic variants with respect to their disease-causing potential, whether they are coding or non-coding, leveraging population-scale databases. Coupled with Fabric Genomics platform, VVP facilitates fast and accurate genetic disease diagnostics sequencing data.

Fabric synopsis:

See how the Rare Genomics Institute (RGI) is using Fabric Genomics' (formerly Omicia) Opal interpretation platform for exome analysis of 3 patients.  "Data analysis is performed with Omicia Opal, a web-based genome interpretation and reporting software platform integrating the machine learning algorithms VAAST and Phevor. We summarize our use of the Omicia Opal platform in three cases that represent the range of outcomes that can result from exome analysis; in one case we identified a likely pathogenic variant in the RDH12, associated with Leber’s congenital amourosis; in a second case we identified a possibly pathogenic variant in IFT140, associated with Jeune syndrome; and in a third case we identified variants of uncertain significance in genes associated with Sotos and Weaver syndrome. Opal integrates VAAST and Phevor algorithms."
