How can a lab capture the current clinical and genetic expertise into an accurate diagnostics tool? As science moves forward, panels must be constantly improved and reviewed to ensure that the latest genetic knowledge is integrated. Eveliina Salminen, Clinical Interpretation team leader, and Samuel Myllykangas, Chief Technology Officer at Blueprint Genetics, discuss what to take into account when designing new panels to match clinical needs.
"Many of the genes we have been currently adding are only very recently identified as clinically relevant. You really need to go to publications and investigate", says Eveliina Salminen.
