MedSavant

The Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI), The Centre for Applied Genomics and The Centre for Computational Medicine are hosting a one hour web conference/webinar about MedSavant - a visual analytics platform for assessing the clinical significance of genomic data.

MedSavant is a data management and analytics solution for genomic variant datasets. It offers a high-performance variant search engine aimed at making the task of finding disease causing genetic mutations easier and more efficient. Complex queries can be constructed from genotype criteria (e.g. call quality, genomic position), phenotype criteria, or from the intersection of external datasets like OMIM. MedSavant is user-friendly, providing a simple interface and real-time visual feedback through a built-in charting platform and next-generation genome browser.

The presentation will be led by Marc Fiume, the chief developer of Savant. The webinar will be appropriate for all levels if clinical investigators that are interested in learning to use a tool that assists in the discovery of disease causing genetic mutations.
