Case Study: Governmental Research Institute and Ingenuity Variant Analysis


  • Solved the following challenges by deploying Ingenuity Variant Analysis:
    • Realized faster and easier identification of causal variants
    • Improved access to biological content including primary sources
    • Enabled independent study without the need for specialized bioinformatics skills
    • Enabled support for more studies by providing a self-service tool for colleagues and collaborators
  • Purchased Ingenuity Variant Analysis for the following reasons:
    • Access rich biological content in Ingenuity Knowledge Base plus additional sources of variant level content
    • Reduce time to identify variants worth following up on
    • Identify high impact, most compelling variants to follow up on

Use Case

  • Uses the following applications with Ingenuity Variant Analysis:
    • DNA sequencing – Whole Exome

  • Is extremely satisfied with the ease of use of Ingenuity Variant Analysis.


user-green2“The biggest advantage of Ingenuity compared to other tools is that it is very user-friendly and very fast. I have bioinformatics skills, but it is very easy and convenient to use and share with colleagues who have none. Also, I love the fact that pathways and biological knowledge from genes and diseases are integrated in this tool.”
