Coverage of PharmCAT in GenomeWeb

In April 2016 and August 2016 we blogged about the development of PharmCAT and its presentation at the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) annual meeting in October.

The Pharmacogenomics Clinical Annotation Tool (PharmCAT) is a software tool to extract all CPIC level-A variants from a genetic dataset (represented as a vcf), interpret the variant alleles, and generate a report. It is currently being developed in a collaboration between the PGRN Statistical Analysis Resource (P-STAR), the Pharmacogenomics Knowledgebase (PharmGKB), the Clinical Genome Resource (ClinGen), and CPIC.

For further coverage about PharmCAT, read the article by Julia Karow on September 26th in GenomeWeb: Researchers Hope PharmCAT Tool Will Help Improve ClinicalImplementation of Pharmacogenomics.
