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.
Genomics England is today inviting applications to join our new Clinical Interpretation Partnership from UK researchers, NHS Clinicians and those in training where they will work on the unique data resource from the 100,000 Genomes Project. The goal of the Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership (GeCIP) is to bring together the best researchers in the UK alongside their key international collaborators to ensure we maximise the potential of gaining new biological insights into rare inherited diseases, cancers and infectious disease.
