Impressively reliable and fast
The future of hereditary disease diagnostics

Use worldwide knowledge to reliably determine the risk of genetic disease

MH Guide/Mendel is optimized for the evaluation of germline variants associated with hereditary diseases. The software application is a module of MH Guide and supports human geneticists in the evaluation of germline variants.

Just like MH Guide, MH Guide/Mendel analyzes gene variants in comparison with data from Dataome, one of the world’s largest databases of biomedical information. The software annotates variants through automated access to relevant databases and uses international standards for variant classification. MH Guide/Mendel summarizes all relevant results in individual reports that provide users with clear, specific information on possible disease-causing genetic variations associated with hereditary diseases.

“Ensure your variant analyses are always in line with the latest science, and benefit from an intuitive application that fits seamlessly into your lab routine: MH Guide/Mendel.” 

Dr. Josef Hermanns
Head of Project Management

Fast, precise assessment of germline variants

MH Guide/Mendel identifies, annotates, and classifies variants for hereditary diseases. The software automatically matches these with data from the comprehensive, regularly updated and quality-controlled database Dataome. This database includes the biomedical knowledge currently published on relevant hereditary diseases and disease-causing genetic variants.

The resulting report summarizes diagnostic information at a glance:

  • What are the functional effects of the variants?
  • To what hereditary diseases is the patient predisposed?
  • What hereditary diseases can be diagnosed based on the identified genetic variants?

How you can benefit from MH Guide/Mendel
