Genomics England, with the consent of participants and the support of the public, is creating a lasting legacy for patients, the NHS and the UK economy through the sequencing of 100,000 genomes: the 100,000 Genomes Project.
Genomics England was set up by the Department of Health to deliver the 100,000 Genomes Project. Initially the focus will be on rare disease, cancer and infectious disease. The project is currently in its pilot phase and will be completed by the end of 2017.
The Sanger Institute has produced an online ethics and genomics questionnaire as part of a research programme they led.
We will publish a summary of the survey results at a later date. Take this survey yourself and discover your own views on these important ethical issues.
