Genomenon Mastermind Search Engine

The free offering lacks some of the features of Mastermind Professional Edition, including genomic data analysis services and workflow automation tools, but it has the same targeted search of genomic research that filters out results not clinically relevant to those interested in genetic relationships to specific diseases. For now, Mastermind Free Edition is available by invitation only.
