May meeting of Crystal Scientifique (open to all members of the public, free entry, cash bar, no need to book): Speaker, Dr Jane Moorhead, King's College Hospital and NHS England, will be talking about the 100,000 Genomes project. An informal "cafe scientifique" that meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 8pm and is organised by CAGS member Grahame.
The project will sequence 100,000 genomes from around 70,000 people. Participants are NHS patients with a rare disease, plus their families, and patients with cancer. The aim is to create a new genomic medicine service for the NHS.
