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. They have joined the Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership (GeCIP), forming either disease-facing or functional groups or ‘domains’. Trainees are also an important part of GeCIP and students can apply to become members.
The aim of GeCIP is to help us better interpret genomic data, which will lead to better clinical understanding and better patient outcomes. Over 2,600 researchers from across the UK and internationally have already signed up. A list of the 42 domains they have formed is available here. These groups will be focused on interpreting the data from the 100,000 Genomes Project to improve clinical care, but will also undertake complementary research – this includes medical, computational and social research.
