Genomenon Mastermind Genomic Search Engine
The latest release of Genomenon's Mastermind Genomic Search Engine indexes approximately 500,000 new genomic variants from supplemental data found in scientific publications, bringing the total number of variants in the engine to nearly 5 million. Most precision medicine tools have not been able to provide insight into supplemental data without manual curation due to the lack of a common file format, the company noted. Supplemental data is often published as an Excel, PDF, .csv, Word, text, or image file. Genomenon said that it overcame this challenge by engineering its indexing pipeline to ingest these different file formats and applying its proprietary Genomic Language Processing technology to index the content for easy retrieval by researchers.
