Abstract

Classification and prioritization of variants is challenging, not just because of the number and uniqueness of variants of potential interest, but also due to the wide range of information sources useful to the prioritization process. Ingenuity has put its proven ability to capture published findings to bring together information on variant and gene function, pathways, processes and disease models within an intuitive system that enbles investigators and clinical researchers to ask many questions of their data and see the results in seconds, with direct access to the supporting findings to guide decisions on which variants to carry forward. Examples pertinant to rare disease, germline and somatic cancer, will be presented.
