UK plans to create DNA medical database:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Discussions are underway on the creation of a DNA database for the UK which will be used, together with patients' medical and lifestyle information, to develop new prevention methods and treatments for conditions such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Details such as the selection of participants and the methodology for collating and storing the information have yet to be finalised. Proposals for a public consultation exercise, which will address issues that concern the public regarding large-scale collections of human biological samples, are currently being reviewed. The project is a joint collaboration between the Medical Research Council (MRC), the Wellcome Trust and the National Health Service.
