Introducing VarSome Pro and VarSome Clinical
VarSome is a suite of powerful, yet intuitive, bioinformatics solutions for next-generation DNA sequencing data for both for clinical and research use. The VarSome search engine is freely accessible, featuring a widely-recognized community-driven knowledge base that enables flexible queries across more than 30 genetic and genomic data resources. VarSome Pro and VarSome Clinical are professional editions of VarSome with powerful functionality and further sophisticated data-mining and analysis tools. While VarSome Pro serves primarily researchers, VarSome Clinical is a clinically-accredited platform allowing fast and accurate variant discovery, annotation, and interpretation of NGS data for whole genomes, exomes, and gene panels, which helps clinicians reach faster and more accurate diagnoses and treatment decisions for genetic conditions.
Frequently asked questions
Is there an API available?
Yes. VarSome’s high-performance Application Programming Interface (API) allows you to annotate variants using VarSome’s integrated database consisting of more than 30 public data resources. Harness VarSome’s API and avoid significant overheads of integrating and maintaining the multitude of the constituent databases yourself. In addition, bothVarSome Pro and VarSome Clinical come with an API to upload VCF and FASTQ files and download annotated and filtered list of variants. Learn more about VarSome API.
