Using Mastermind’s New ClinVar Integration
to Accelerate Clinical Diagnoses
THURSDAY, September 22, 2022

ClinVar is a public archive of information submitted by genetic testing labs on the relationships between medically important genetic variants and their clinical characteristics found in patients. Now, all published variants, pathogenicity interpretations, and other key information within ClinVar’s database are included as part of Mastermind’s comprehensive body of evidence.

This new integration means that clinical users can keep their workflow contained within a single easily searchable interface. By streamlining variant interpretation in this way, Mastermind accelerates diagnosis and enriches clinical reporting with actionable insights not found in ClinVar.

You will learn how:

  • How to streamline variant interpretation workflow within a single easily searchable interface
  • How to access all the scientific evidence for a variant required to support diagnostic decisions
  • The value of examining cited evidence from the medical literature when interpreting variants
