Currently, the Bejerano lab has an effective Mendelian-disease-diagnosing tool, but it still has room for improvement. Cole is working on improving the tool’s knowledge base by finding a way to efficiently search the web for papers that discuss pathogenic Single Nucleotide Variants (SNVs), and loading them into the system to improve future diagnoses.
