Release 1 of Genovic: Melbourne Genomics’ shared clinical system for genomics
4 July 2018
Melbourne Genomics is excited to have completed delivery of Release 1 of Genovic: its shared clinical system for genomics. This point marks conclusion of the first phase, which has:
- established and implemented pipelines built on DNAnexus
- selected a curation tool and implemented this as a shared system
- integrated all these services.
The next phase of GenoVic (Release 2) will involve working with the laboratories to integrate their systems with GenoVic, enabling clinical tests to be operational in the system.
GenoVic integration lead and Melbourne Bioinformatics software engineer, Anthony Marty said the completion of Release 1 was a significant milestone for the Alliance:
The system we have established now successfully runs singleton germline samples from end-to-end (that is, from sequencing, through curation and to production of a clinical report). We are just weeks away from having tumour/normal and trio samples supported within the system, as well.
It has taken a tremendous amount of work from everyone across the Alliance to get to this point. I am now looking forward to working with the laboratories to implement their clinical workflows.
