100,000 Genomes Project

The 100,000 Genomes Project helped cement the NHS’s position as one of the most advanced healthcare systems in the world, and helped lay the foundation for a new era of personalised medicine, and contribute towards delivering high quality care for all, now and for future generations.

The 100,000 Genomes Project aimed to bring the benefits of personalised medicine to the NHS and we are now in the process of returning primary results and additional findings to the Project participants. It also helped lay the groundwork for the provision of a Whole Genome Sequencing service for children with cancer and seriously ill children likely to have a genetic disorder that will be available as part of routine clinical care soon.
