Genomics England is delivering the 100,000 Genomes Project.
We are creating a new genomic medicine service with the NHS – to support better diagnosis and better treatments for patients. We are also enabling medical research.
Genomics England has contracted with Congenica and Omicia to work with them on the interpretation of the genomes from 8,000 patients. Two new companies, Berg Health and NGM Biopharmaceuticals have joined Genomics England’s industry collaboration, the GENE Consortium.
The Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Australia, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Genomics England. The two organisations will share resources and expertise to advance genomic medicine in Australia and the UK.
