Our company “AcademGin” LLC has signed a License Agreement to obtain from the Dutch software developer PolyKnomics BV an exclusive license for the use and distribution throughout the Russian Federation of the computer program "Module for calculating polygenic risks of diseases and predicting the expected quantitative trait values from individual genomic data” (or P3MED).
he program performs input, quality control and imputation of individual genetic data (IGD), calculation of polygenic risks and predictions of the expected value of quantitative traits based on individual data. Both HDIs obtained using DNA microarrays and next-generation sequencing data are accepted as input. IGD imputation is performed using an external program and uses data from a reference population. The calculation of polygenic risks includes synchronizing the HDD with the data of the prediction model and directly calculating polygenic risks with the selected parameters. If data on phenotypes are available, the quality of the prediction is analyzed using various quality metrics and graphical display methods.
Using P3MED, both as a separate software system and in combination with our own product NGS Wizard, we can make a reliable and highly accurate calculation of human polygenic risks with selected parameters based on individual genetic data or next generation sequencing data. Such calculations can be made to order for current and potential customers.
