Centogene CentoMD 3.0

Centogene has launched CentoMD 3.0, an updated version of the company's identified variant database. It includes data from more than 74,000 diagnosed individuals, more than 22,000 genes curated in detail, and the clinical significance of these variants evaluated by strict guidelines. The new release gives the medical community access to an advanced Phenotype-to-Genotype module that enables symptom-based queries and returns candidate genes as well as associated underlying the symptoms of interest. It also can work as a Genotype-to-Phenotype module to provide an interactive search interface to select and filter through genes, transcripts, and variants.
