SHARING OPTIONS:

CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom—The University of Cambridge, Genomics England and Illumina Inc. have announced the beginning of an effort to sequence 10,000 whole genomes of children and adults with rare genetic diseases. The three-year project is the beginning of an initiative to sequence 100,000 genomes in the UK National Health Service, a goal recently announced by Prime Minister David Cameron. Genomics England will provide 2,000 samples for this undertaking, while Illumina will provide whole-genome sequence data for the project. The University of Cambridge will work with a team headed by Dr. David Bentley, Illumina’s vice president and chief scientist, to develop workflows to help bring routine, clinical whole-genome sequencing to the bedside. It is estimated that some 3.5 million people in the United Kingdom will face a rare disease in their lifetime.
