100,000 Genomes Project

HODS are part of the East of England Genomic Medicine Centre, which is one of the GMCs in the UK contributing to the 100,000 Genomes Project. This is a national study facilitated by NHS England aiming to use whole-genome sequencing of the UK population to further our understanding of rare diseases and cancers, and transform the NHS and lives of some patients.
