Project Description

Physicians will soon be able to use patients’ whole genome sequencing information to run diagnostic searches that will improve clinical decision-making. This promises significant medical and economic benefits, including the elimination of multiple genetic tests and early detection and treatment of patients with high genetic risk of disease.

Integrating whole genome sequencing into clinical practice requires specialized software that will allow clinicians to identify relevant genetic variants in patients.

Drs. Michael Brudno and Gary Bader aim to improve healthcare by developing broadly shared software that will prioritize the genetic variants in patients who may require medical attention.
