Genomics England announces contractors for genome interpretation

Four companies will each provide genome annotation and interpretation reports for the 100,000 Genomes project.

The companies Congenica and Omicia will work on rare-disease genomes, Wuxi Nextcode will look at rare disease and cancer, and Nanthealth will report on cancer, Genomics England said on 3 June.

Genomics England said that the aim was for each company to provide reports for 2,500 patients, if this could be accommodated within its budget. The organisation intends to learn from a variety of approaches in a pilot phase before agreeing further contracts in early 2016.
