GenomSys said Wednesday that it has received CE marking for the GenomSys Variant Analyzer. The genomic analysis software adheres to the MPEG-G genomic data representation and compression standard, which GenomSys has championed.
The GenomSys Variant Analyzer integrates curated variant databases from Varsome to automate genome annotation. According to GenomSys, a startup specializing in DNA data processing software, the use of MPEG-G helps the new product deliver faster data access time and smaller storage requirements.
“We designed GenomSys Variant Analyzer for the analysis of the vast amount of data generated by whole-exome sequencing to support geneticists in deciphering the causes of rare disorders,” CSO Luca Trotta said in a statement.
