Description: The primary aim of this programme is to deliver the then Prime Minister , David Cameron's, commitment to sequence 100,000 whole human genome samples by December 2017. The Project has four specific aims: to bring benefit to patients and create a genomic medicine service for the NHS; to enable new scientific discovery and medical insights; to create an ethical and transparent programme based on consent; to kick start the development of a UK genomics industry.
DCA (RAG) Amber/Red
DCA text: RAG rating reflects that fewer sequences have been completed than expected at this stage. SRO and Programme Director continue to monitor the situation and proactively challenge delivery partners (e.g. Genomics England on informatics and NHS England on GMCs providing samples) via project Steering Group and Assurance Board. Ministers, No 10 and IPA understand current status and delivery challenges relating to this world-leading project.
Start date 2013-04-10
End date 2017-12-31
Schedule text Genomics England / NHS England report that the rare disease element of the project is back on track following actions taken as a result of deep dive to improve sample flow. Delivery of the cancer element of the project remains challenging as the science around extracting enough high quality DNA from cancer samples at scale to enable Whole Genome Sequencing, is extremely complex.
