Denmark establishes National Genome Center

On 29 May 2018, the Danish parliament adopted a new Act to establish a national genome center that will develop and run a nationwide information infrastructure for personalised medicines.

The National Genome Center will provide a common infrastructure with capacity for genome sequencing and a national genome data base. Persons within the healthcare sector and patients will receive information on the use of patient treatment.

The Act also contains a regulation of the use of information given to the National Genome Center for purposes of preventative disease control, medical diagnosis and statistical or scientific research, etc.

You can read more about the National Genome Center here and here (in Danish).
