President & CEO

Through innovative products, Golden Helix has been simplifying the clinical workflows and genomic testing for numerous labs. For instance, Prevention Genetics, a clinical testing laboratory offering genetic and DNA banking services with the largest menu of gene sequencing tests, sought a solution for analysis of gene panels. The deployment of Golden Helix�s VS-CNV not only helped the client in exceeding chromosomal microarrays with the highest probe density but also streamlining the process of annotating and filtering variants obtained from next-generation sequencing pipeline. Eventually, Prevention Genetics succeeded in optimizing clinical testing.

New & Improved ClinVar Annotations
Functional Predictions & Conversation Scores in VSClinical
by Nathan Fortier, Ph.D
Senior Product Engineer

If 3 of 4 of the splicing algorithms predict a variant to be disruptive, then we recommend PP3 regardless of what�s predicted by the functional prediction and conservation scores. If the conservation scores and functional prediction algorithms are both consistent with deleterious effect, then PP3 is recommended regardless of the splice site algorithms. In this way, we treat different variant effects as isolated types of computational evidence. Only agreement amongst algorithms of the same type is required to recommend PP3.

This month we revealed our newest product, VSClinical, which will help clinical users assess the clinical relevance of a particular variant. This product�s development was funded by grant 1R43GM128485-01. As the PI of this grant, I would like to personally thank the NIH for their generous support of our work in this field. VSClinical is officially available for commercial use! We want to show our gratitude towards those clients who are adopting this product right away, thank you. All customers who purchase VSClinical in the month of June will be issued a 15-month license for the price of the annual (12-month) subscription fee. The Golden Helix Team is very excited about this new product� and what�s right around the corner for us. We will be releasing a few more announcements later this year � so, stay tuned!

Automating the ACMG Guidelines with VSClinical

June 6, 2018 | 12:00 PM Eastern

Register for the webcast

Clinical Genetic testing requires a complex analysis using the totality of our knowledge about the clinical relevance of a variant and a gene. This includes bioinformatic evidence as well as clinical evidence. The ACMG Guidelines provided a framework in which to score variants based on this evidence, and while some of those scoring criteria require close consultation of the clinical context for a given patient, much of it can be automated. In this webcast, we review how VSClinical automates the ACMG scoring guidelines while integrating the collective lab expertise from previously classified variants and preferences about genes.
