At the Precision Medicine World Conference this week, researchers discussed how they plan to return genomic results to participants of research-focused sequencing studies.

In the long run, genome-wide DNA methylation profiling could be useful in diagnosing constitutional disorders as well as cancer.

Funded with €15.4 million from the EU's Horizon 2020 program, the researchers plan to reanalyze almost 20,000 patient exomes and conduct additional tests on selected subgroups.

The partners are planning to conduct meta-analyses of shared exome datasets from patients with inherited neurological disorders.
