Genomenon Mastermind Panel Design Service

Genomenon has launched its Mastermind Panel Design Service. The service provides researchers with genes and variants associated with a particular disease by using the company's Mastermind database to mine for disease-gene-variant relationships extracted from primary medical literature, the company said. Using that information, Genomenon researchers can help consumers curate a panel from candidate genes, exons, and variants supported by literature citation.
