FDNA Announces Availability of London Medical Databases Online Integrated with Face2Gene

FDNA to launch full London Medical Databases Online integration with Face2Gene and Face2Gene availability for PC, Mac and all mobile devices at ACMG 2015

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 04, 2015  – FDNA, the pioneer in computer-aided dysmorphology analysis, has announced today that it has completed full integration with London Medical Databases LMD Online. This new offering allows Face2Gene users, for the first time, complete online access to the Baraitser-Winter Database London Medical Databases.

FDNA will exhibit, at the ACMG 2015 meeting in booth #811, in Salt Lake City UT the latest version of Face2Gene, which includes full multiplatform support for PCs, Macs and smart mobile devices. Face2Gene is the only available genetic search and reference solution using facial analysis technology.

Is a Computer-Based Facial Dysmorphology Novel Analysis Ready for the Clinic?

Previously, we were able to demonstrate that the facial dysmorphology novel analysis technology was successful in recognizing the facial dysmorphology associated with targeted selected syndromes by processing 2D facial images. In this study we investigated the performance of the Facial Dysmorphology Novel Analysis technology by analyzing a random set of images of dysmorphic individuals affected with a random variety of syndromes.

Conclusions and future work
30%–40% of genetic disorders manifest craniofacial abnormalities. Facial analysis software can successfully assist medical professionals of different specialties in the research and investigation of multiple genetic syndromes characterized by dysmorphic features. Possible future applications may include usage of facial analysis software to complement molecular studies, such as whole exome sequencing, by automatic phenotyping.

Facial analysis technology aids diagnoses of genetic disorders

… facial analysis program known as Face2Gene, launched recently by New York–based FDNA Accessible Genetics, is a genetic search and reference mobile application that has capabilities similar to the approach developed by the Oxford researchers. It can be downloaded for free to Apple devices.
Face2Gene is the result of several years of research, development, and validation by a group of geneticists led by Michael R. Hayden, MD, PhD, Chairman of FDNA’s Scientific Advisory Board and Steering Committee and Senior Scientist at the Centre for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics in Vancouver, Canada.
