PrimBio Exome Data Analysis

PrimBio Research Institute has launched new exome data analysis services. The service uses generated VCFs from sequenced exomes or aligned BAM files to provide exome data analysis. The company can provide consumers with QC filtered exome data sets, variant classification, molecular function of a variant, determining drug resistance or drug efficacy, using in silico tools, reporting clinical trial information of clinically significant variants, and complete references associated with findings, the company said.
