We are excited to announce that Opal 4.17 is live! In this release, we have upgraded to Ensembl version 83. We also continue to augment our clinical product to further support high-throughput labs' requirements, including enhancing our ACMG Scoring and Classification module, released in January. Opal Clinical fully supports compliance with the 2015 ACMG Guidelines for interpretation of sequence variants, and accelerates evaluation of the evidence associated with each of the 28 criteria to classify variants.
ACMG Scoring is fully integrated into the standardized clinical interpretation workflows in Opal Clinical. Opal Clinical provides an end-to-end solution for clinical NGS testing, combining Omicia’s industry-leading Opal annotation platform with structured workflows, full support for clinical report generation, curated gene panels and LIS integration -- all within a secure, HIPAA-compliant environment. Contact email@example.com if you’d like to try Opal Clinical.
Opal has been upgraded to use Ensembl 83 annotations.
This significant update includes:
- Update of gene symbols and HGNC synonyms
- More comprehensive mapping to RefSeq transcripts
- Upgrade of VAAST 3 background database to Ensembl 83
- Architecture for structural variant interpretation (coming in March)
Opal Clinical Enhancements
Opal Clinical has been augmented to further support high-throughput labs' requirements. Updates include:
- Template content for Recommendations can be included clinical report template for panel tests
- Default filtering protocols can be set up for panel tests
- Clinical report filters now enable searching by rsID
- Family reports now include zygosity of all family members in the Add Variants page
Opal Clinical can also be configured to meet your lab's specific reporting workflow with custom report statuses. For information on configuring report statuses, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Project and Genome Search
The Projects list view now has a text search box, which allows searching for projects and genomes based on Project Name, Project Description and Genome Label.

2ClinVar Duplicate Submission ID issue. ClinVar's February release had an issue with a repeated submission id. In the ClinVar February XML file, SCV000023327 was associated with two condition variant records (RCV’s): RCV000003169 and RCV000202436. Due to the unique relationship Opal expects between RCV and SCV, this SCV was associated with RCV000003169 only.
