Sharing genomic data across borders

The increasing volume of high quality data and the development of ever more powerful tools to analyse and interrogate that data has opened the door to immense opportunities to improve evidence based healthcare and to identify new treatments and avenues for research. There remain however significant practical, legal and political obstacles to such progress. Recent months have seen European stakeholders coming together with the intention of addressing some of the practical obstacles, as well as new data protection laws coming into effect across Europe. Nabil Asaad and Chris Shelley of Penningtons Manches LLP, in this article, discuss the efforts being made to increase cross-border access to genomic data in Europe.
