Genomics England is a wholly owned company of the Department of Health. Genomics England is working together with NHS England, Health Education England and Public Health England to deliver the 100,000 Genomes Project. This flagship project will sequence 100,000 whole genomes from NHS patients and their families. The project is focusing on patients with rare diseases, and their families, as well as patients with common cancers.

The project involves individuals and their families consenting to provide DNA samples, which are analysed at the sequencing centre. The centre sends the resulting DNA data to the Genomics England platform at UKCloud over secure, dedicated 10Gbit/s connections using UKCloud’s HybridConnect service.

Working together to build the infrastructure has been the touchstone of the relationship between Genomics England and UKCloud. UKCloud provides the Compute as a Service platform for data processing and analysis; and hosts and manages specialised storage equipment which is owned by Genomics England and integrated into the cloud environment.
