New Face2Gene case report to help phenotype patients

Published on March 27, 2017

FDNA provides a HIPAA-compliant Face2Gene deep learning technology that de-identifies and analyzes cases to identify new phenotypes, facial characteristics and genes that are associated with rare diseases.

The new Face2Gene case report enables a clinician to share their patient’s case phenotype with Blueprint Genetics to help improve variant filtering and prioritization. Having access to a structured patient phenotype that includes Face2Gene’s facial gestalt analysis can improve diagnostic yield by as much as 100%. Clinicians are invited to submit patient photos, diagnoses, and phenotypes to the HIPAA-compliant Face2Gene CLINIC system for analysis.
