New Products: Knome's KnomeClinic


Knome has begun an early-access program for knomeClinic, a software suite designed to help medical researchers and clinicians interpret human genomes.

The company said that clinics accepted into the program will be given "installation priority, access to pilot programs and pre-release prototypes, and the ability to influence knomeClinic's feature set upon general release."

The knomeClinc suite is built upon the company's kGAP informatics and annotation platform, which accepts raw sequence data from major sequencing platforms and generates standardized, annotated data sets.

Knome has not provided a timeline for the commercial release of knomeClinic, but said that when it is available it will include desktop interpretation-support applications; a database of curated reference data containing more than 100,000 genotype-phenotype associations; and software that will allow researchers, physicians, and medical institutions to "curate and prioritize genotype-phenotype associations, whether publically available or self-generated."
