Geisinger Recognized with Best Practice Award in Genome Analysis

Geisinger Health System’s Genomics Medicine Institute earned grand prize recognition by Bio-IT World in its ninth Best Practices Awards. Geisinger was recognized in the category of informatics for integrated genome-phenome analysis for its work in an international contest led by Boston Children’s Hospital.

With a goal of establishing best practices for interpreting genomic data, the project involved 23 teams of professionals from around the world competing to interpret the DNA sequences of three children with rare conditions whose causes were a mystery.
