The UK’s 100,000 Genomes Project

The 100,000 Genomes Project is applying whole genome sequencing in a diagnostic setting to rare disease and cancer patients from the National Health Service (NHS) of the UK. In the video below Damian Smedley describes how clinical phenotype data is collected on each rare disease patient and how this work takes advantage of a number of reference disease and model organism genotype to phenotype databases including the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium. The video was recorded at the recent KOMP2/IMPC annual meeting, hosted by the National Human Genome Research Institute.
