The 100,000 Genomes Project has commenced. Genomics England is heading the project which has plans to sequence 100,000 whole genomes from NHS patients by 2017. This project aims to bring benefit to patients, create an ethical and transparent programme based on consent to enable new scientific discovery and medical insights and kickstart the development of a UK genomics industry.
