Data in the 100,000 Genomes Project

This video was developed for the 100, 000 Genomes Project and describes how genomic data is stored and secured in this project. If you are considering genomic testing, especially as part of a research project, some of this information may be useful as a starting point for learning about storage, sharing and security of your genomic data. Note: there may be differences in data sharing laws between Australia and England.
