Oncogenicity Scoring in VSClinical
Oncogenicity Scoring in VSClinical
Presented by Nathan Fortier, Ph.D†
Director of Research†

Before accessing the clinical evidence associated with a specific variation, one must establish that the variant is likely to be a driver mutation, which generates functional changes that enhance tumor cell proliferation. In this webcast, we will discuss VSClinicalís capabilities for determining the oncogenicity of a variant. This will include a deep dive into our oncogenicity scoring system and a discussion of the various criteria used to distinguish driver mutations from benign variations and variants of uncertain significance...

AMP-Based Variant Classification with VSClinical
August 7, 2019 | 12:00 PM Eastern

Evaluating somatic variants according to the cancer AMP guidelines can be an extensive process. In addition to the standard collection of all available, clinical evidence for any biomarkers, there is a need to define treatment options following final classification. Even the most adept clinicians familiar to the guidelines suffer from this arduous process and thus need a standardized approach for classifying, interpreting and reporting variants according to the AMP guidelines. VSClinicalís new AMP workflow alleviates these complexities by providing an automated workflow that captures and reports on all critical data present...
