Mastermind Masterclass: ACMG/AMP Classification

Thursday, June 25th, 2020 | 11am EDT

Learn from the architects of Mastermind with the Masterclass webinar series!

The Mastermind Genomic Search Engine has the essential ability to filter the genomic literature by ACMG/AMP criteria. 

The American College of Medical Genomics (ACMG), in collaboration with the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) and the College of American Pathologists (CAP), guide the standards for the interpretation of genomic variants. This includes classifying genetic variants into five categories based on specific scientific evidence.

While some of the evidence can be based on population data or computational data, genomic variants cannot be classified as pathogenic without citing evidence from peer-reviewed scientific literature. Mastermind is the only genomic search engine that provides an extensive search of all the scientific literature according to ACMG classification guidelines. Users can search Mastermind by disease, gene, variant, and ACMG/AMP criteria to find clinically prioritized scientific evidence that can be cited in patient reports.

Join co-founders Dr. Mark Kiel and Steve Schwartz as they lead a live discussion and demonstration of the ACMG/AMP filtering process, and stay for the live Q&A that follows.

You will learn: 

  • How to more efficiently identify and prioritize publications by ACMG/AMP variant classification guidelines
  • How increased specificity and immediate access to annotated search results accelerates variant interpretation workflow
  • How increased sensitivity in literature search results in fewer false negatives
