Genome sequencing trial to test benefits of identifying genetic diseases at birth

Genomics England is to test whether sequencing babies’ genomes at birth could help speed up the diagnosis of around 200 rare genetic diseases and ensure faster access to treatment. The study, which will sequence the genomes of 100,000 babies over the next two years, will explore the cost-effectiveness of the approach, as well as new …
