Agency

The Agency app in Opus 23 takes pharmacogenomics to the next level. Relying on the extensive Opus 23 database of published research detailing gene expression data linked to natural products, Agency provides a visual representation of their interactions web. Multiple…

SuperMogadon

SuperMogadon is a highly flexible search and sort tool that allows you to easily compare the client’s genotype with results from Genome Wide Association Studies* (GWAS) through the Opus 23 Pro database. As you can see there are over 50+…

There has been an explosion of interest in the microbiome. Outfits such as uBiome has made it relatively inexpensive and easy to have your microbiome profiled. These services extract the bacterial DNA out of the sample and identify each of…

Protocol development

Two years ago I developed a software app called SkySaw for use on my teaching shift at the COEGM. SkySaw allows clinicians to structure patient encounters as a linked network (technically a directed acyclic graph). What made this attractive was…

Pearl of an idea

Like most of my coding projects Opus 23 Pro is written primarily in the Perl scripting language. Perl handles most of the basic server-side functions (like disk reading, etc) and sends its output out to the browser via HTML, Javascript,…

Client-friendly reporting

I designed Opus 23 Pro to serve two user audiences: the physician who works in the development environment to generate and curate information; and the client, who represents the end-user of that information. Both have widely differing needs and points…

Multi-SNP algorithms

Algorithms are perhaps the most significant and flexible aspect of Opus 23 data. They are usually the easiest result for the non-medical person to understand, because their conclusions are usually simplified statements in everyday language. Algorithms are processed by the…
