Automated classification of ~7,000 variants shows near perfect concordance with expert panel assessments

Caring for patients is now 99% information and 1% intervention.

To keep pace with the latest findings emerging from thousands of publications daily, clinicians are turning to automation solutions for variant interpretation and reporting.

But how accurate are automated pathogenicity and actionability classifications?

Join us for a 60-minute webinar investigating the accuracy of QIAGEN Clinical Insight (QCI®), a precision medicine platform that automatically (and reproducibly!) computes variant classifications for any indication, germline or somatic.

In this webinar, you will

  • Examine a case study comparing QCI’s automated variant classification to human-derived variant classifications from expert panels (the ENIGMA consortium and ClinGen*);
  • Develop a clear understanding of QCI’s variant assessment process, with particular focus on the automation of professional guidelines (ACMG/AMP, AMP/ASCO/CAP, etc.);
  • Differentiate between transparent and “black box” variant interpretation and reporting solutions;
  • Explore how clinicians can incorporate both automation and manual solutions to ensure fast turnaround times with uncompromised accuracy and detail.
