Twist Exome Solutions powered by SOPHiA DDM™

From data to insights to confident care

The Twist Exome Solutions powered by SOPHiA DDM™ are NGS-based applications that bundle the Twist Human Comprehensive or Human Core Exome enrichment kit with the SOPHiA DDM™ platform to accelerate the assessment of variants associated with rare and inherited disease.

The combined end-to-end workflow (from sample to report) helps you reduce sequencing costs by increasing sample throughput and achieve a very high depth of coverage across target regions. Both solutions shorten turnaround time by enabling the detection of multiple types of variants (i.e., SNVs, Indels, and CNVs) in one unique experiment and catalyzing your interpreting efforts with the intuitive filter options of SOPHiA DDM™.

Efficient panel design to optimally cover more than 99% of protein- coding genes

Customizable panel to expand or enhance content with a quick production turnaround

Confident detection of multiple types of variants, including CNVs with exon-level resolution

Integrated features to facilitate variant filtration and interpretation

Access to the most updated and trusted databases, such as OMIM and HPO

Unlimited, secure and scalable cloud-based data storage

Secure knowledge sharing with peers through the SOPHiA GENETICS’ community

Dedicated features to ease variant interpretation

The SOPHiA DDM™ platform features intuitive variant filters and prioritization options to streamline interpretation and help reduce turnaround time.

  • Dual Variant Pre-Classification to improve assessment of variants’ pathogenicity based on both ACMG scores and our machine learning-based predictions
  • Virtual Panels to restrict the interpretation to sub-panels of genes using the HPO or OMIM browser
  • Cascading Filters to apply custom filtering options for quicker screening of relevant variants and save strategies for future analyses
  • Familial Variant Analysis to quickly identify causative variants by selecting different inheritance modes with a single mouse

Through SOPHiA DDM™, you can also have access to Alamut™ Visual Plus, a full-genome browser that integrates numerous curated genomic and literature databases, guidelines, missense and slicing predictors, thus enabling a deeper variant exploration.
