1.Upload FASTQ or VCF

VarSome Clinical accepts Illumina as well as MGI FASTQ data and any VCF file. You can upload the data easily and securely through its web interface or you can harness VarSome's powerful API for an automated and secure data transfer. Once the files are uploaded, you can start the analysis!

Annotate VCF

With VarSome Clinical you can upload a VCF file containing single or multiple samples (tracks) for variant annotation and classification. Subsequently, you can apply any number of sophisticated dynamic and/or algorithmic filters to quickly find the causative variants or other variants of interest. Learn more about VarSome's variant filtering options.

Annotate FASTQ

With VarSome Clinical you can upload Illumina and MGI FASTQ files for variant discovery, annotation, and classification. You can perform analysis for multiple samples, such as risk carrier screening for couples, analysis of tumor-normal samples, studies of trios and families or comparative analysis of families of any size or small cohorts. Learn more about VarSome's alignment, joint calling, and variant calling.

Multi-sample Analysis

With VarSome Clinical, you can perform analysis for multiple samples, such as risk carrier screening for couples, analysis of tumor-normal samples, studies of trios and families or comparative analysis of families of any size or small cohorts. Learn more about VarSome's multi-sample analysis.

2.Annotation & Classification

VarSome Clinical's robust pipeline is capable of analyzing gene panels, exomes, and whole genomes for individual samples, trios, families, and cohorts in just minutes. VarSome Clinical leverages the massive cross-referenced knowledge base of the free VarSome.com platform, and also offers access to licensed databases.

Quality Control Reports

VarSome Clinical comes with an extensive Quality Control Report which covers pipeline settings as well as statistics for alignment, variant calling, ACMG and more. Gene Coverage Report and Coding Coverage Report is also available.

ACMG, AMP, & CNV Classification

VarSome Clinical displays automated variant classification according to the guidelines of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) and the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP). VarSome Clinical has also implemented the ACMG guidelines for CNV interpretation. Each ACMG and AMP rule is explained, along with why it has been triggered, or why not. If you have some additional evidence, you can manually turn on or off other ACMG rules and easily reach the final verdict for your variant. Learn more about VarSome's ACMG, AMP and CNV ACMG implementation.

125+ Data Resources

VarSome Clinical offers a massive cross-referenced knowledge base consisting of 125+ public genomic databases, representing over 33 billion data points, plus contributions from a 350'000-strong community. But there is more to it: whenever a public database is updated, VarSome processes it and makes it available for annotation and classification! Learn more about databases available in VarSome.

Proprietary Data Resources

With VarSome Clinical you can access proprietary and licensed data sets of 3rd party data providers on a condition you possess a corresponding license. You can also import your own local database with allele frequencies and integrate it privately in VarSome Clinical for annotation and classification of your variants.

3.Intuitive Web Portal

VarSome Clinical's feature-rich and intuitive web interface allows for variant filtering according to pathogenicity, ACMG & AMP classification, allele frequency, gene list or phenotype, and many more. Dynamic and algorithmic filters allow you to perform simple or advanced filtering like segregation analysis, identification of de novo variants or variants in imprinted genes.

Dynamic Filters

Dynamic filters are combinations of conditions to apply to your samples in order to reduce your search space. They are powerful, yet easy to set up, modify and apply in seconds to any of your samples. You can filter variants based on allele frequency, pathogenicity, ACMG, zygosity, function or gene list, to name a few. Learn more about dynamic filters.

Algorithmic Filters

Algorithmic filters are sophisticated filters that can be fully customized according to your workflow and other specific needs. With algorithmic filters, you can perform segregation or gene list-based analysis, find compound heterozygous variants, identify de novo variants or variants in imprinted genes, to name a few. Learn more about algorithmic filters.

Sample Cross-referencing

VarSome Clinical allows you to build your own database of samples and variants. You can comment on variants and set up custom variant classifications to be shared with the members of your team. You may even share data at a single variant level with your partner institutions on the condition that both parties consent in writing. With VarSome Clinical you can also import your own local database with allele frequencies and use it for variant annotation and classification.

Variant Sharing Program

On top of custom variant classifications and comments sharing with the members of your team, you may even share data at a single variant level with your partner institutions on the condition that both parties consent in writing. Learn more about the variant sharing program.

4.Clinical Report Generation

Once you have narrowed down the list of variants of interest, you can proceed with clinical report generation, which includes all the details of your variants, including literature references and your custom comments. The layout of the report is fully customizable according to your unique logos and branding policy.

Compliance

VarSome Clinical is certified as an In-vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Medical Device according to the requirements of EC 98/79/EEC.
