In 2012 the UK government made a major commitment to setting up one of the largest gene sequencing projects in the world. Facilitated by the UKís universally accessible health service, the NHS, the 100,000 Genomes Project aims to sequence the genomes of patients with rare undiagnosed diseases and cancer. The results are already being fed back to patients, where large scale genome sequencing can allow for diagnoses of patients who previously didnít have one, while anonymised data is also being analysed to provide a much better understanding of the way disease and cancer works. This will allow for a new generation of personalised medicine, across the NHS and beyond.
