NHS England has today named the Genomic Medical Centres (GMCs) that will be leading the project, the majority of which will be looking for for a mixture of cancer- and rare disease-related genomic information. Recruitment will begin on 2 February, 2015 and will include a cross-section of patients from across England, including some suffering with life-threatening and debilitating diseases.

Eleven centres across the UK will soon start recruiting patients to have their DNA collected and decoded as part of the 100,000 Genomes Project
