Research in the 100,000 Genomes Project
Researchers and clinicians, from both academia and the NHS, are working together to continually analyse data from the 100,000 Genomes Project. The aim is to help us better interpret genomic data, which will lead to better clinical understanding and better patient outcomes.
They have joined the Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership (GeCIP). Trainees are also an important part of GeCIP. The researchers have formed groups or ‘domains’. Each domain covers a different disease or topic in the project. The groups will be focused on interpreting the data to improve clinical care, but will also undertake complimentary research – this includes medical, computational and social research.
