A Roster of Opus 23 Algorithms

This is a current list of the multi-snp algorithms currently available in Opus 23. A few titles repeat, for the simple reason that two different algorithms, using different snps or genes, can result in a similar conclusion.  Algorithms can be…

Strobing the tissues

Opus 23 provides many unique opportunities for data integration and visualization. One app that I’ve just been added to the Opus toolbox is STROBE, a new Opus analytic app that allows you drill-down client genomic data by organ, tissue or…

Don't Fall into the Methyl Trap!

Methyl trapping is a situation in which folate becomes trapped and unusable by the body. It is defined as a functional folate deficiency that alters homocysteine metabolism such that folate–dependent resynthesis of methionine is compromised. Methyl trapping was originally described in…

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+…

MoboCaster

MoboCaster is an Opus 23 Pro informatics app that performs scenario-specific genomic analysis since, as clinicians, that’s pretty much how we think about genomics. The browser screen (above) in MoboCaster lists an overview of several genomic scenarios, such as the…

Ancestry data is a no-go

Initially, I was very excited about the prospect of allowing the import of ancestry.com DNA data into Opus 23. After all, they use the same Illumina technology as 23andMe (although 23andMe apparently have their own unique chip.) Initial testing was…

Microbiome mashup

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…
