Informatics Research Seminar: PEDIGENE® A Proven Comprehensive Approach to Information Management for Genetic Studies

February 18 @ 4:00 – 5:00 pm

 

Speaker: Carol Haynes

 

Abstract:

PEDIGENE® A Proven Comprehensive Approach to Information Management for Genetic Studies

Ms. Haynes will describe the PEDIGENE® information management system for human genetic studies. This Oracle-based system has been developed
over the past 20 years at the Center for Human Genetics and has played a key role in localizing or mapping more than 50 genes involved in diseases. PEDIGENE® emphasizes data integrity while managing and automating many repetitive tasks involved in genetic studies. The system’s streamlined integration of clinical and high dimensional genetic data (GWAS, CNV, -omics) makes for easy data entry and retrieval and includes robust security to rigorously guard access to confidential genetic research data.
