SOPHiA GENETICS is excited to be a part of the European Society of Human Genetics 2022 annual meeting, held in person and virtually in Vienna, Austria from June 11-14.
You will have the chance to chat with our experts at booth #280 and schedule a demo of the universal SOPHiA DDM™ Platform.
We are also happy to invite you to our symposium taking place on Sunday, June 12, from 08.30am to 10.00am CEST at level -2 in rooms -2.32 & -2.33. See here below for the details:
Integrating nuclear and mitochondrial DNA analysis to expand research into rare diseases
Over the past decade, next-generation sequencing (NGS) has emerged as a comprehensive and cost-effective tool for the diagnosis and research of rare diseases. It is well known that mutations in nuclear DNA can cause a range of human diseases, with rare diseases affecting 5% of the world’s population. A fact that is less well known, is that mutations in the mitochondrial genome (comprised of a mere 37 genes) can cause mitochondrial diseases that affect 1 in 5000 people.
Join us for this exciting symposium to discover how the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform combined with Alamut Visual Plus™ has enabled the identification of novel disease-causing variants through real-life examples. You will learn how the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform efficiently supports both targeted and exome-size applications, with simplified workflows and optimized analytics for both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA, to generate accurate results and solve challenging research questions.
