Our team is coming to BioIT World Conference & Expo that takes place in Boston on May 15–17th 2018.

VarSome, our ‘Google of Genomics’, was selected a Finalist in the Best of Show Awards of BioIT Conference. Come and support us at our booth 646!

VarSome — The Human Genome Variant Search Engine

VarSome is both a powerful annotation tool and search engine for human genomic variants, and a platform enabling the sharing of knowledge on specific variants. Since its initial release in May 2016, VarSome has grown to 56,000 users from more than 120 different countries. It has already been integrated into other websites, including the Variant Validator, and has been used as an educational resource in university lectures. As the community continues to grow, VarSome is becoming an increasingly important knowledge base for human variation. Most importantly, the ability of users to mark variants as pathogenic or benign allows the combined expertise of the community to be organized and shared to the benefit of everyone in the field.

Saphetor — Genome-Scale NGS Data Annotation and Interpretation Tool

Saphetor is our ultimate variant discovery, annotation and interpretation tool for NGS data, brought to you by the creators of VarSome, The Human Genomic Variant Search Engine. Saphetor laverages the aggregated knowledge of VarSome and allows you easily incorporate its features into your information flow through the means of APIs.

  • End-to-End Solution — Let your sequencing machine automatically upload the data to Saphetor and download annotated VCF files and pathogenicity reports.
  • FDA Winners — Food and Drug Administration office of USA marked Saphetor’s results among the best, as witnessed by an F-score of more than 99.5%.
  • 35+ Databases — Classify and annotate your data against 35+ constantly updated gene and variant databases. Benefit from Saphetor’s network of molecular geneticists.
