The 100,000 Genomes Project
- Posted on Feb 14, 2018
The 100,000 Genomes Project is being delivered by Genomics England (funded by the Department of Health and Social Care) to find the genes that cause rare diseases such as Osteogenesis Imperfecta.
The 100,000 genomes project is now closed for recruitment.
The next stage over the next few years is to analyse the samples to identify new causes of Osteogenesis Imperfecta and understand how the genes impact on patients’ lives. Genomics England will keep the Brittle Bone Society updated on the results of the study as they come out.
