Genomics England have completed the release of a second dataset from the main programme of the 100,000 Genomes Project. In brief, this consists of cancer and rare disease data for main programme participants, including:
- genomic data for participants who have consented to participate in the Project
- associated clinical data for all participants who have consented to take part in the Project, including those for whom we do not yet have a sequenced genome
- all secondary data that we hold for participants, including those for whom we do not yet have a sequenced genome:
- Hospital Episode Statistics (HES), including accident and emergency, admitted patient care, and outpatient care
- Diagnostic Imaging Dataset (DID), which provides a record of diagnostic tests rather than the images themselves
- Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs)
- Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS).
A total of 235 GeCIP members – from the Neurology, Colorectal Cancer and Quantitative Methods, Machine Learning and Functional Genomics domains – now have access to the Genomics England Research Environment and can begin working on this dataset in line with their publication moratorium. Genomics England anticipate bringing more researchers into the environment in the next few months in order of Access Review Committee approval. If your domain has not yet submitted a detailed research plan, details of how to do this can be found on the Genomics England website.
