Relationship to leverage the latest techniques in informatics and genetic analysis.

SynapDx Corporation today announced that it has formed a collaboration with the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. The collaboration brings together scientists with leading expertise in computational biology and software engineering to accelerate advances in next generation sequencing. 

SynapDx is currently conducting one of the largest prospective, multi-center studies to analyze blood from children undergoing clinical evaluation for autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The objective of the collaboration is to develop advanced next generation sequencing (NGS) analysis techniques to further enhance test accuracy and clinical utility in autism diagnostics.  

"We are thrilled to be working with SynapDx.  Our collaboration will enable us to really push the methods for variant detection in new directions," said Eric Banks, Group Leader of Genome Sequencing and Analysis at the Broad Institute.

“Our partnership with the Broad  Institute  helps advance  our  mission  by  developing  powerful tools for the analysis of  next generation sequencing  data  that  will  have broad application in  the  detection of  autism and beyond ,”  said  Mark DePristo, SynapDx Vice President of  Informatics .
