Webcast: ACMG-Based Variant Classification with VSClinical

Summary

Evaluating variants according to the ACMG guidelines can be an extensive process as it requires an in-depth understanding of all available criteria for any variant. Even the most adept clinicians familiar to the guidelines suffer from this tedious manual process and from the challenge of teaching these fundamentals to new technicians. VSClinical is an automated solution to the complex ACMG guidelines process. In this webcast, we will present how VSClinical follows the true-to-form ACMG classification rules. Additionally, users will discover the value of automating the ACMG guidelines to make variant classification consistent and simplify the interpretation process for those less familiar with ACMG criteria.
