Blueprint Genetics joins FDNA’s Year of Discovery, uniting clinicians globally with deep learning technology to make rare disease discoveries

Published on February 27, 2017

We are inviting clinicians worldwide to participate in FDNA’s Year of Discovery. Clinicians are invited to submit patient photos, diagnoses, and phenotypes to the HIPAA-compliant Face2Gene CLINIC system for analysis. March is the month for RASopathies. Blueprint will match each RASopathy case uploaded during the month with a $1 donation to related advocacy.
The Face2Gene deep learning technology will de-identify and analyze the shared cases to identify new phenotypes, facial characteristics and genes that are associated with rare diseases—advancing our understanding and hope for the future.
