For physicians

Physicians have many important roles in clinical genomics including identifying when patients may or may not benefit from genomic testing, discussing testing and results with patients, liaising with laboratories, and acting on results

KCCG and our collaborators are developing resources and tools to assist physicians and other medical specialists with these roles:

Genomics eLearning Module

This resource is a collaboration between the KCCG and the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). It will introduce Australasian medical specialists to genomics and help them appropriately:

  • Discuss genomics with patients
  • Refer patients to genomic testing
  • Be involved in genomics’ broader integration into healthcare

It will be available through this website and the RACP’s elearning portal in late 2018.

Clinical Genomics Research Resource

Hosted at the NSW Health Centre for Genetics Education

This resource aims to assist clinicians and researchers who are starting clinical genomics research in their area of expertise.

It steps users through the key considerations for clinical genomics research, covering topics like ethics, participant interactions and the multidisciplinary team. It also addresses project and experimental design, and the challenges associated with different genomic technologies and genomic data. The content includes links to professional guidelines and case studies to allow users to apply their new knowledge.

The Clinical Genomics Research Resource was developed by Bioplatforms Australia, NSW Health Centre for Genetics Education and Garvan’s Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics (KCCG) with support funding from the NSW Ministry of Health Office of Health and Medical Research (OHMR).

Seav-Ed

Go to the Seav-Ed Genome Filtering demo

One of the greatest challenges of clinical genomic testing is determining which of the 4 million genetic changes (or variants) in someone's genome could be the cause of their condition. This is often referred to as "genome filtering".

Seav-Ed lets users have a go at finding a genomic diagnosis through four clinical case studies, doing genome filtering on real genomic data with a tool called Seave.

Hippo

Go to the Hippo prototype

The KCCG Phenomics Program is building an app in partnership with Monarch Initiative to make it easier for clinicians and researchers to find what they need in the millions of articles in PubMed.

Every day, the platform takes in any new articles on PubMed, then uses artificial intelligence to recognise biomedical terms like genes and phenotypes to supercharge searching.
