THE CHALLENGE

The identification of meaningful gene mutations can be costly, and time consuming

THE SOLUTION

Johns Hopkins researchers have developed “Pyromaker,” an easy-to-use online computer software application that can identify gene mutations faster and at less cost than other methods currently available. The software generates simulated pyrograms, which are readouts from a gene sequencing technique known as pyrosequencing.

COMPONENTS
  • Pyromaker Tutorial
  • An easy-to-use web based interphase.

OUTCOMES
  • Rapidly sorts through each of several simulated pyrograms, until there is a clear match with the actual tumor pyrogram.
  • Enables researchers to do in minutes, essentially at no cost, what otherwise would take days of further, expensive tests.
