The 100,000 #GenomesProject, which is being carried out by the Department of Health body Genomics England, aims to sequence and collect the complete DNA sequences of 70,000 NHS cancer and rare disease patients, and their families. The aim is to analyse these genetic sequences – which will be de-identified – to help develop new disease diagnostics and create personalised treatments, as well as to encourage innovation in the UK’s bioscience sector. The sequencing of a single genome creates hundreds of gigabytes that need to be stored digitally. The project, which has sequenced 13,040 genomes to date, is expected to generate 10 times more data in the next two years. #EMC, #DellTechnologies
