Patients Know Best Taps Tute to Provide Genome Analysis

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Provo, Utah-based Tute Genomics said today that Patients Know Best — a developer of an online medical records system — has selected its cloud-based software for genome analysis and interpretation.

According to Tute, the arrangement will make it possible for the UK-based firm to incorporate patients' genetic profiles into their healthcare records, allowing physicians to use this information to customize treatments.

Financial and other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Last month, Tute said that it had been selected to provide next-generation sequencing analytics for a molecular diagnostic test being developed by Lineagen for developmental delay, autism spectrum disorders, and other disorders of childhood development.
