The SOPHiA DDM™ platform used by IHG PAS to advance its male infertility research
BOSTON and ROLLE, Switzerland, November 17, 2023 /CNW/ — SOPHiA GENETICA (Nasdaq: SOPH), a cloud-native software company and leader in data-driven medicine, today announced that Institute of Human Genetics, Polish Academy of Sciences (IHG PAS), the leading genetic research center in Poland, is now available on the SOPHiA DDM™ platform. IHG PAS will use SOPHiA GENETICA to advance its research into rare diseases, in particular male fertility.
It is estimated that around one in six people worldwide will be affected by infertility in their lifetime.1 As a staple in the medical research community of Poland, IHG PAS specializes in several areas of research, including reproductive biology. When using the SOPHiA DDM™ platform, the Department of Reproductive Biology and Stem Cells of IHG PAS intends to deepen its research in the area of male infertility, through next generation sequencing (NGS) for the genetic evaluation of infertility.
“The research we do at IHG PAS is widely used across Poland due to our deep relationships with the surrounding medical community and our nearly 50-year history,” said Marta Olszewska, Assistant Professor, Head of the Sperm Genetics Research Team, IHG PAS. “With the implementation of the SOPHiA DDM™ platform, our team is now able to streamline their research and provide our partners with accelerated discoveries that can positively impact the understanding of infertility.”
IHG PAS will use the SOPHiA DDM™ Whole Exome Solution (WES), which is a next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based application that provides a streamlined end-to-end workflow, from sample to variant reporting, to accelerate research into hereditary diseases, including infertility. Using the SOPHiA DDM™ platform, IHG PAS will analyze results and simplify insights in an efficient time frame.
“The advanced analytical analysis provided by the SOPHiA DDM™ platform provides nightly WES analysis and has a rich knowledge base to help identify variants of interest associated with rare diseases.” said Kevin Puylaert, Managing Director, EMEA, SOPHiA GENETICA. “Furthermore, the decentralized The nature of the SOPHiA DDM™ platform creates collective intelligence from all platform users around the world and can help better inform researchers studying rare diseases, including IHG PAS researchers.”
With the SOPHiA DDM™ platform, IHG PAS will maintain full ownership of its database, supporting its research team as they continue to grow their expertise and develop their learnings.
