GenomOncology Pathology Workbench

GenomOncology has released a new version of GenomOncology (GO) Pathology Workbench, which the software company said has been updated to process Illumina's TruSight Oncology (TSO) 500 assay and other larger panels. GO Pathology Workbench now can process samples in parallel, cutting sample annotation time by 80 percent. The new release also adds management of higher sample throughput as well as intepretation of copy numbers and structural variants in next-generation sequencing. It draws from datasets not included in previous releases of Pathology Workbench, including gnomAD, MutationTaster, PolyPhen, SIFT, cancerhotspots.org, and the Cancer Gene Census.
