Genomenon Hosts Clinical Genomics Experts at European Human Genetics Conference
Acibadem Labgen and Héritas Use Mastermind Genomic Search Engine to Solve Real-World Cases
Genomenon®, the AI-driven genomics company, recently announced that it will feature expert clinicians from Acibadem Labgen in Turkey and Héritas in Argentina at this year’s European Society of Human Genetics Virtual Conference. The on-demand talk will highlight the innovative Mastermind Genomic Search Engine®, and how it has made a difference in real-life clinical cases.
Mastermind works by connecting patient genetic data with relevant evidence from scientific literature – essential to the practice of precision medicine for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and genetic disease. Mastermind has created a comprehensive database of over 9.6 million published variants across all genes and diseases, making it the world’s most comprehensive source for genomic literature for researchers and variant scientists.
Now integrated into over 20 clinical-grade genomic software platforms across the globe, Mastermind is the ideal research companion for those tasked with decoding genomic data. For organizations like Acibadem Labgen and Héritas, Mastermind has become central to their daily operations.
Located in Istanbul, Acibadem Labgen supports the Acibadem Healthcare Group and other associated institutions with genetic diagnostic services to support patients and their care teams. Over 7,000 miles away in Rosario, Héritas carries on a similar mission, with a focus on oncology and reproductive genomics. Together, both organizations are dedicated to advancing human health by making sense out of genomic data.
During the presentation, Nisa Esen, a clinical bioinformatician from Acibadem Labgen and Ariana Gonzalez, a medical genetics specialist from Héritas explore real-world cases where use of Mastermind led to more informed diagnosis and treatment decisions.
“[Mastermind] is comprehensive, and compared to other sources, it not only has an impressive number of variants and publications, but it also includes supplemental data – which is very important,” said Nisa Esen of Acibadem Labgen. “In fact, with Mastermind, we were able to rapidly uncover a new gene-phenotype association that had not yet been listed on common disease databases yet.”
Genomenon is an AI-driven genomics company that organizes the world’s genomic knowledge to connect patient DNA to scientific research in the diagnosis and development of treatments for patients with rare genetic diseases and cancer.
Genomenon was named Global Company of the Year in Clinical Genomics Interpretation by Frost & Sullivan.
