Alamut™ Visual Plus
For variant annotation, deep exploration, and enhanced visualization
Variant annotation and interpretation on a genomic scale
Pinpointing pathogenic mutations from large, complex datasets can be difficult, time-consuming, and sometimes overwhelming. Alamut™ Visual Plus is a comprehensive, full genome browser for efficient and user-friendly variant interpretation.
Alamut™ Visual Plus, accessible through both SOPHiA DDM™ and as a stand-alone product, is used in renowned university medical centers, institutions, and genetics laboratories worldwide.
Highly appreciated by its users, the software accelerates the complex and time-consuming assessment of variants thanks to its user-friendly interface and integrated features for variant annotation and analysis.
3 Key Features of Alamut™ Visual Plus for Variant Analysis
1. Comprehensive variant annotation
ACMG point-based classification with the option to filter based on evidence strength for each rule
International guidelines such as HGVS nomenclature
A single interface to access variant annotation information from >55 world-renowned curated databases and predictors such as ClinVar, dbSNP, BRIDGES, CADD, COSMIC, MedGen, Orphanet, dbVar, and DGV
High-quality in-silico missense and splice variant predictors such as REVEL, MaxEntScan, NNSPLICE, SIFT, and PolyPhen-2
Literature sources such as PubMed® and MasterMind®
2. Enhanced variant visualization
Comprehensive full-genome browser
GRCh37/38 assemblies and mitochondrial genome visualization
Structural variant track including copy number variation (CNV) analysis
Displays flanking regions and overlapping genes
BAM, VCF, BED, and Sanger file viewers
Simultaneous exploration of multiple genes
3. Efficient laboratory workflows
Direct link from SOPHiA DDM™
Private data management
Dynamic variant filtering
“I particularly like the visualization of GRCh37, GRCh38, or the mitochondrial genome, conveniently displaying regions close to the genes of interest and the option to see overlapping genes. Also, the option of knowing the impact of a variant on the overlapping gene, as the software enables analysis of several genes’ BAM sequences simultaneously”
