Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are useful in genetics as they test for the association of a phenotype with common genetic variants. GWAS is “hypothesis-free” and does not require prior knowledge of a gene’s biological impact on a trait. The catch though is that this leads to analyzing hundreds to thousands of genome-wide array samples to elucidate single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with a specific phenotype.
Featured in many of our recent blog posts, webcasts and tradeshow discussions, chances are you have heard about our newest tool, VSClinical, by now. Can you blame us though?! Allowing users to automate the clinical interpretation of variants based on ACMG guidelines – it is hard not to talk about it! But, in case you have not, this post serves as… Read more »
Our “Processing Hereditary Cancer Panels in VarSeq” webcast was a great lesson for viewers to learn more about the functionality of our software. If you didn’t have a chance to join us for the live event, you can watch the recording on our site here. Q: What is the best place to get clinical interpretations of breast cancer variant interpretations?… Read more »
