Artificial Intelligence Aiding Human Interpretation Of Sequenced Genomes

Diagnostics World

A “quiet revolution” has been underway over the past year, exponentially growing the number of genetic variants discoverable by genome sequencing, according to Stephen Kingsmore, M.D., president and CEO of Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine in San Diego. Notably, it is now possible to identify an enormous number of structural variants—large genomic alterations that […]

Artificial Intelligence Can Rapidly Diagnose Rare Genetic Diseases


An artificial intelligence (AI)-based algorithm can quickly diagnose rare genetic diseases in critically ill children with high accuracy, allowing earlier treatment, according to a new report. “This study is an exciting milestone demonstrating how rapid insights from AI-powered decision support technologies have the potential to significantly improve patient care,” Dr. Mark Yandell, professor of human […]

Rady Children’s Team Presents Genomic Medicine Management Tool at ASHG


A Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine-led team has developed an automated management guidance system for pediatric patients with rare genetic conditions who have been testing by clinical sequencing. RCIGM President and CEO Stephen Kingsmore outlined the resource and rationale for it during a session on omics-based diagnostic approaches at the American Society of Human Genetics annual […]

Early Genome Sequencing Improves Care for Critically Ill Infants

Clinical OMICs

Infants in the ICU who received whole genome sequencing (WGS) were twice as likely to get a diagnosis and a change of management than those who did not get early sequencing, according to a paper released today from a multi-center collaboration by The NICUSeq Study Group.

Previously Unexplained Birth Defects Rooted in Genetic Mutations

MedPage Today

Disrupted Wnt signaling results in newly termed Zaki syndrome A mutation in the WLS gene causes Zaki syndrome, a newly identified disorder characterized by multiorgan birth defects such as microcephaly, foot syndactyly, and heart defects — suggesting a potential target for treatment.

Whole Genome Sequencing in Babies Proves Mettle

MedPage Today

Changed management in substantial number of cases; but it’s still not cheap About one in five extremely ill infants lacking a clear diagnosis benefited from whole genome sequencing, researchers found in a randomized trial.

Finding Answers for Undiagnosed Patients with Rare Genetic Diseases


Despite the ability of whole genome sequencing to diagnose patients with rare genetic disease, the technology still leaves many patients without a clear diagnosis. Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine, which has innovated the use of rapid whole genome sequencing in the neonatal and pediatric ICU, is now working to diagnosed patients left undiagnosed by […]
