100,000 GENOME PROJECT

What is the 100,000 Genome Project?

 

The 100,000 Genomes Project is a project currently being undertaken across England under the Department of Health. It will create a new genomics service across the NHS to transform the way patients are treated. 100,000 genomes will be sequenced and analysed, comprised of patients with rare diseases, their families, and patients with cancer. This is currently the largest national sequencing project of its kind in the world.

AIMS

  • To investigate the genetics behind rare disease and cancer, to gain a greater understanding of the cause of disease with hopes of being able to create personalised medical treatments.

  • It will also provide diagnoses for patients with rare, undiagnosed conditions.
