  • Publication number: 20190206512
    Abstract: Systems, platforms, methods and media for providing genomic services axe disclosed. In one example, a system for providing genomic services comprises genomic sequencing equipment configured to generate sequence reads based upon a biological sample obtained from a user, store the sequence reads in a FASTQ storage file, and communicate the FASTQ file electronically to a recipient. The system also includes a genomic services platform which includes a network interface through which the sequence reads are received, and a bioinformatics processing pipeline. The bioinformatics processing pipeline includes a read alignment module configured to generate observed sequence data, and a variant calling module is operative to identify observed variants in the observed sequence data. A variant storage module is disposed to receive a query from network infrastructure of a partner application provider and to provide selected ones of refined variants in response to a query.

  • Patent number: 10296842
    Abstract: Systems, platforms, methods and media for providing genomic services are disclosed. In one example, a genomic services platform comprises a network interface through which are received genomic sequence reads derived from a biological sample obtained from a user. The platform also includes a bioinformatics processing pipeline including a read alignment module configured to generate observed sequence data by aligning the sequence reads relative to a reference sequence, a variant calling module operative to identify observed variants in the observed sequence data, and a variant refinement module for producing genotype data including a set of refined variants associated with the user. A variant imputation module produces a set of imputed variants associated with the user, and is configured to receive, as input, at least some of the genotype data and separate the genotype data into high-quality and low-quality genotypes based on a genotype quality.
