Genomics England https://www.genomicsengland.co.uk/
Partnered with the NHS to provide whole genome sequencing diagnostics. Data collected equips researchers to find the causes of disease and develop new treatments.
The 100,000 Genomes Project https://www.genomicsengland.co.uk/initiatives/100000-genomes-project British initiative to sequence, and study, the role genes play in health and disease. Participants with rare diseases and cancer had their whole genome sequenced to help identify areas of the genome causing disease and to discover potential treatments. Project was completed in December 2018, with research and analysis still ongoing through GECIP and Discovery Forum.
