We are thrilled to share with you some of the accolades and interest from numerous publications from the last six months. Talking points ranged from diagnosing and tracking Covid-19 infections leveraging NGS to new workflows, interpreting and reporting on copy number variants to numerous awards given to our company.
We extend our gratitude for the recognition and will continue to provide quality innovation in the Next-Gen sequencing space.
Diagnosing and Tracking COVID-19 Infections Leveraging Next-Gen Sequencing – The Journal of Precision Medicine
July 8, 2020 | The COVID-19 pandemic is reaching historic proportions. We are dealing with an infectious disease that is caused by a novel coronavirus we discovered just a few months ago. Since then, it has brought healthcare systems to the brink, it altered how we work, it changed how we socialize, and it impacted the world economy in a major way.
While a global response has been mobilized to defeat the virus, there are currently no good solutions available. The current goal is to reach a sufficiently high level of immunization in the global population and to develop treatment options. In the meantime, we have to be efficient in diagnosing infections, isolating COVID-19 cases, and studying this virus by understanding its subtypes, epidemiology, routes of transmission, and clinical manifestation. In this article, we summarize our current understanding of COVID-19 and the virus SARS-Cov-2 causing it. Most of the papers we reference were published since the beginning of this year. The body of knowledge is quickly expanding and evolving. Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) can deliver significant insights into this process. This article outlines how NGS… Read more »

Insight Success Award – The 10 Most Innovative Pharma and Life Sciences Service Providers 2019
November 6, 2020 | Golden Helix’s main goal is to empower its end-users to perform high-end analytics work. This is achieved by producing software that gives the power of analysis to researchers, supporting them through their analysis, and providing them with genomic services when the need arises. Golden Helix takes pride in itself for creating software tools that are integrated and robust, but more importantly user-friendly and intuitive. The tools are specifically created in order to empower biologists, clinicians, and other researchers to easily perform complex analyses and visualizations, eliminating the need to rely exclusively on bioinformatic experts or cobble together difficult to use, incompatible freeware. This way researchers can completely focus on their research instead of learning to be a programmer or waiting in line for bioinformaticians. The organizations’ support team is motivated by one mission … Read more »

Golden Helix’s Recent Release for a New Workflow for Interpreting and Reporting Copy Number Variants in Concordance with the Recently Updated ACMG Guidelines: Introduction – The Journal of Precision Medicine
December 28, 2020 | A copy number variation (CNV) is a type of structural variation in which a large section of the genome is either duplicated or deleted. CNVs account for much of the variation between human genomes, and they are associated with a wide range of disorders. As more disorders associated with CNVs are identified, and as NextGen sequencing is more widely utilized in the clinical setting, tools supporting rapid, accurate, and cost-effective identification and interpretation of CNVs are needed.
Recently, the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) has developed a new set of CNV interpretation guidelines in collaboration with the Clinical Genome Resource (ClinGen) project,1 analogous to the guidelines currently in place for small variants. In the time since the release of these guidelines, the Golden Helix team has developed a new automated workflow that enables Read more »
