Polygenic Risk Scores
Our genes provide valuable insight into our family history, our ancestry, and our health. As we learn more about our DNA, we identify new opportunities for healthcare. One such opportunity comes from using polygenic risk scores. In this video, you will learn what a polygenic risk score is, see how they can be used in healthcare, and find out how you can participate in research studies that use them.

Your genes and your heart – Hugh Watkins Open Weeks 2015
Hugh Watkins, at the Radcliffe Department of Medicine, University of Oxford, discussions the way that looking at genes helps with diagnosis and treatment of people with heart conditions. Talk given at the Oxford BRC Open Evening, 12th March 2015.
The 100,000 Genomes Project – Prof. A.Schuh
Professor Anna Schuh, Director of the Oxford NHS Genomic Medicine Centre and Associate Professor of Molecular Diagnostics for the University of Oxford's Department of Oncology, on Oxford’s role in the national 100,000 Genomes Project, a project to unravel the genetic changes underlying rare disease and cancers. The project will aid research, improve diagnosis and ultimately clinical outcomes so NHS patients can receive care based on cutting edge scientific techniques. Eligible patients with rare diseases and cancers are being invited to provide health data and blood and tissue samples for whole genome sequencing, where a complete set of a person's genes is decoded.
