SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Strand Life Sciences (Strand) representatives will demonstrate new capabilities of the company's variant interpretation and reporting software, StrandOmics at the Association For Molecular Pathologist (AMP) 2014 Annual Meeting to be held from November 12th to 15th in National Harbor, Maryland. The 20th anniversary meeting's theme is "Realizing the Dream of Precision Medicine," with a special address by Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the National Institute of Health. At AMP, Strand will host a workshop on the innovative developments and application of its StrandOmics software, plus new expansion efforts in Personalized Medicine.
"StrandOmics significantly reduces variant interpretation and reporting time for next generation sequencing laboratories from days to hours. In addition, it simplifies the whole process of annotating variants, classifying them, storing them and linking them to publications and public data sources through biologically relevant visualization tools" says Preveen Ramamoorthy, Ph.D., Vice President, Clinical Diagnostics.
StrandOmics is based on first-hand variant interpretation and reporting genomics experience through next generation sequencing of whole genome, exome and multi-gene panels, plus feedback from key opinion leaders in the field of genomics and genetics. StrandOmics is supported by forty-five full time curation scientists who work with proprietary algorithms which continuously populate the StrandOmics variant database and can provide custom curation services.
Come meet Strand experts for a demonstration of StrandOmics at AMP Booth 133.
