GenomeQuest has launched GQ-Dx, software to help make clinical decisions based on whole-genome sequence data. The new software is based on the company's GQ-Engine, and does variant detection and annotation, maps and documents variants against known inherited somatic mutations, and integrates the data with other clinical data systems such as electronic health records and therapy protocols to create a comprehensive patient diagnostic record. GQ-Dx can also be used in diagnostic research to compare data against patient population studies.
