The University of Iowa team below was named a finalist and awarded $5,000 in the competition that challenged international research teams to provide the best interpretation and communication of DNA sequencing results for three children with rare, undiagnosed genetic diseases. Several aspects of the UI team’s approach earned them the “finalist” designation, including an approach to data analysis that incorporated an evaluation of data quality or coverage, the multidisciplinary team approach, and the consent form, which was considered the best in the competition as it allows patients to customize the type and scope of genetic information they will receive from the DNA sequencing data.
