Short description

Personal genetic data and their analysis are becoming more and more important in everyday life. While the first genome was published in 2000 and only a very small number of genome sequences existed in 2010, in 2014, the genomes of 280 000 people were sequenced. This trend continues, and therefore, it can be expected that by 2017, approximately 1,6mio genomes will have been sequenced (Regalado, 2014). All in all, it can be expected that a few years from now, more than 20mio people will have been sequenced (entire genomes and parts of genomes). 

The PROMISE project's goal is to strengthen the individual's right to self-determination and data protection: "Who does what with my genetical data, and for what purpose"? Data security is the top priority. Users should understand what their data is being used for and a solution suitable for daily use should be developed, so the trust of users in the safe processing is strengthened.

Scientific Abstract

Konzeptionell besteht die im Projekt erforschte und entwickelte innovative Technologie aus drei Komponenten,:

Als teilnehmende Parteien gibt es Patienten, die ihre Daten in unserem System speichern und Kunden. Kunden können Universitäten, Institute oder auch Firmen sein, die auf einen bestimmten Teil der Daten mit einer bestimmten Fragestellung zugreifen. Das System unterstützt die Berechnung auf verschlüsselten (genetischen) Daten.
