Whole genome sequencing is a relatively new technology that allows us to ‘read’ a person’s or organism’s entire genetic code. But how does it work and what does it mean for all of us?

 

Starting Monday 23rd January, the Health Education England’s Genomics Education Programme (GEP) online course features interviews with leading scientists and medics working at the forefront of this new technology.

 

Participants in the course will learn more about the processes of sequencing the genome and interpreting results through real life case studies featuring participants taking part in the government’s pioneering 100,000 Genomes Project.
