Presented By: Darby Kammeraad, Director of Field Application Services

Golden Helix is committed to providing next-gen sequencing solutions that are comprehensive and efficient. A significant portion of our user base processes pediatric cases or requires the ability to run family-based analyses that can be applied to all inheritance models in order to identify rare variants in Mendelian disorders and cancer. To increase diagnostic yield and reduce time to clinical results, these models and workflows must be easy to set up and used efficiently. Optimization can involve all the steps, including data import, workflow design (variant filtering), a detailed evaluation of variant impact and clinical relevance via ACMG guidelines and AMP guidelines, as well as providing a full clinical report.
VarSeq is the best tool to accomplish this task. VarSeq, our tertiary analytics platform, is designed to process all sizes of genomic data. It can filter through all variants in order to identify clinically relevant variants. The results are evaluated using automated and standardized guidelines. This webcast will demonstrate workflows tailored to different pedigree scenarios. It will also demonstrate VarSeq features designed to speed up analysis time while maintaining consistency with outcomes.
In this webcast, we will cover the following topics:
  • Explore various family-based project designs (includes trio and duo & extended families)
  • Discuss various inheritance models (compound het, de novo, dominant inherited, etc)
  • Briefly examine the ACMG guidelines relevant to inheritance and review an example trio clinical report
  • Demonstrate how VSPipeline can automate the creation of projects
