On 25 September 2015, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust recruited its first family to the 100,000 Genomes Project. This project focuses on patients living in England with rare diseases and their families, and patients with cancer. Sequencing 100,000 genomes will enable scientists and doctors to understand more about specific conditions and how we treat them and will greatly enhance the genomic diagnostic capability in the NHS.
