Numerous clinical decision support systems and knowledgebases have been developed to assist variant scientists and laboratory directors with the task of variant classification. These private and commercially available systems utilize varying degrees of software automation and manually curated literature to provide variant assessment and therapy matching for clinicians.
The body of literature that must be accessed to deliver accurate variant interpretation is vast and there is debate in the field as to the most accurate and efficient approach.
This white paper from Qiagen describes a study demonstrating that clinical decision support tools can help to reliably streamline and standardize somatic variant interpretation and address the high degree of variability among experts in somatic clinical interpretation.
