Privacy-aware retrieval and modelling of genomic data

Project Details


The genomic revolution has made collecting personal genomic data
increasingly affordable. These data require special care to guarantee
their privacy because any anonymisation is inherently impossible and
any breaches would be permanent and may affect many people across
generations. New cryptographic and information security methods are
clearly needed to provide strong privacy guarantees while allowing
efficient utilisation of the data. In this project we will address
several related scenarios of secure utilisation of genomic data,
including efficient utilisation of personally held genomes, retrieval
from databases and utilisation of the data for personalised medicine
modelling, while maintaining the privacy of all involved parties.
