Call for Research Proposals issued at the American Association of Human Genetics annual meeting ASHG2015
Boston, MA (PRweb) October 5th, 2015 – FDNA, a pioneer in computer-aided dysmorphology analysis, invites geneticists from around the world to join the second cycle of the “GIVE A FACE TO A SYNDROME” research program. The date of the release coincides with the American Association of Human Genetics annual meeting, ASHG 2015, in Baltimore, MD, where attendees can receive more details at booth #915.
The Facial Dysmorphology Novel Analysis (FDNA®) technology, powering Face2Gene, a neurogenetic search and reference solution that facilitates detection of facial dysmorphic features and recognizable patterns of human malformations to present comprehensive and up-to-date neurogenetic references will also be the center of this research program. Taking part in the GIVE A FACE TO A SYNDROME program enables geneticist to use the FDNA technology for free, to leverage the support of a dedicated research team and to utilize FDNA’s tens of thousands of dysmorphology related data‐points.
Applicants are invited to submit proposals in this link www.FDNA.com/Cycle2
Designed for teams and genetics departments, Face2Gene streamlines case and workflow management
NEW YORK, May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ –FDNA® the pioneer in computer-aided dysmorphology analysis will launch Face2Gene Team Edition at the European Society of Human Genetics conference in Glasgow, Scotland on June 6-9, 2015. This newest addition to the Face2Gene family, powered by FDNA (Facial Dysmorphology Novel Analysis) technology, enables geneticists’ teams to share information and leverage the team’s cumulative knowledge. Face2Gene® facilitates detection of facial dysmorphic features and recognizable patterns of human malformations to present comprehensive and up-to-date genetic references.
Face2Gene is now also available on PC, Mac and mobile devices facilitating daily use of physicians in their clinical practices. “Using Face2Gene to reference all my department’s cases, share information with my colleagues and to quickly look up relevant information in the London Medical Databases Online saves me hours of work every week and allows me to focus on my patients.” said Assoc. Prof. Ibrahim Akalin, MD, Medical Geneticist from the Istanbul Medeniyet University in Turkey. Dr. Akalin, together with Dr. Sarenur Yilmaz, has conducted research with Face2Gene and will be presenting their findings during the ESHG 2015 meeting in Glasgow.
Multi-platform availability for PC, Mac and Mobile devices enables access to Face2Gene anywhere, anytime and now, also through any device
