We have now entered the final phase of the 100,000 Genomes Project, with fewer than 7 months remaining until recruitment closes at the end of September.
Almost 4500 Rare Disease patients and their families, and over 1900 cancer patients, have taken part in the project through the East of England NHS Genomic Medicine Centre. We are happy to announce that some participants have already received genomic findings relating to their conditions through the project.
If you’re a rare disease or cancer patient please check our website to see if you could be eligible for a free whole genome sequence.
***MILESTONE REACHED: In February the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and Genomics England announced that a landmark 50,000 whole human genomes had been sequenced within the 100,000 Genomes Project. For the full press release go to the Genomics England website.***
