This is a running account of enhancements made to the Mastermind Genomic Search Engine. The most recent updates are at the top, followed by previous updates, so you can see all that the Genomenon team is doing to improve Mastermind in one place.
The Mastermind team has released its latest update to the Genomic Search Engine platform, which aims to help users find their supplemental match and filter by PMID. This update is a significant development for Mastermind, as it takes into account user feedback to provide more personalized and accurate search results.
Last week, the Genomenon team hosted its inaugural User Group Meeting in Salt Lake City. For us, this highly anticipated gathering of Mastermind users was truly special as it marked the beginning of an exciting new tradition of learning and collaboration.
The latest update to Mastermind has integrated ClinVar, a public database of clinically observed variants and their pathogenicity interpretations by the clinical labs that submitted the variants. This can often serve as a quick jumping off point for deciding to further investigate a given variant based on the evidence provided in Mastermind.
In this blog, chief technology officer Steve Schwartz describes the limitations of the Mastermind Cited Variants Reference (CVR) that affect genomic analyses, and how the integration of Mastermind’s API can help surmount them.
We have just released a major update to Search Companion, our Chrome extension for Mastermind. Key elements of this enhancement include functionality on eight new platforms, a more intuitive interface with deeper data, plus access is now available to all Chrome users, including those without a Mastermind account.
