Enabling Genetic Discovery

Raise your expectations.

At Golden Helix® we strive to enable genetic research by creating user friendly, yet powerful tools for managing, analyzing, filtering and visualizing genomic and phenotypic data. Our software tools are built with biologists and other researchers in mind - to empower you to perform complex analyses and visualizations. We take care to research and implement the latest methods and best practices into our software products, enabling novel genetic discovery and moving precision medicine forward.

Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS)

The SNP and Variation Suite™ (SVS) software includes a broad range of analytic tools built to empower you to quickly and easily perform quality-assurance and statistical tests for genetic association studies. Learn more about our GWAS capabilities here.

Large Sample DNA-Sequencing

SVS includes quality-assurance utilities, annotation of variants and collapsing methods for region-based association and other statistical frameworks for analyzing variant data associations. Read the full details surrounding our large-n capabilities here.

Trio Analysis

The VarSeq® software allows users to analyze Family Trios with ease by including a Project Template with basic filters for the analysis of six different Mendelian inheritance patterns, such as Compound Heterozygous Detection and deNovo Variants. These variants can then be further investigated with our impressive library of annotation sources.

Small Sample DNA-Sequencing Workflows

SVS gives users access to the latest annotation sources for filtering and annotating rare variants from secondary analysis pipelines to obtain a short list of potentially pathogenic variants. Explore our small-n capabilities here.
