Through sequencing the DNA of about 70,000 people affected by rare disease or cancer, the project will provide advanced diagnostics for NHS patients, undertake research, and establish the infrastructure for a genomic medicine service in the NHS.
The UK will be the first country in the world to bring whole genome sequencing into routine healthcare, potentially making personalised medicine a reality for all.
