May 14, 2019 – KGI First Academic Partner for Genomenon’s Genomics Educators Program

Genomenon announced today the launch of its Genomics Educator Program and named the Keck Graduate Institute(KGI) as its first academic partner for this effort which provides graduate level students with access to its flagship product the Mastermind Genomic Search Engine. According to Candace Chapman, director of marketing for Genomenon, the relationship with KGI was built off a conversation struck up between Fortini and Genomenon executives in 2017 at the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG)Annual Conference. “Barbara has shared great feedback as a Mastermind user since then, and she was the first person we reached out to for the Genomic Educator’s Program,” Chapman told Clinical OMICs in an exclusive interview. “It’s safe to say that Barbara and the Keck program was a major inspiration.”Continue Reading….

May 9, 2019 – Rare Genomics Institute Brings Hope to Rare Disease Patients

“Sometimes there is only one research paper that can connect a patient’s DNA with a diagnosis. Searching through millions of research papers to find a patient’s genetic mutation can be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. With advanced AI techniques used by Genomenon, the needle can pop right into view.” said Dr. Ray. “I can say with certainty that without the findings obtained from Genomenon, I would not have been able to provide a diagnosis for this patient.”Continue Reading….
