Genomic Privacy (Dagstuhl Seminar 15431)

Authors: Jean Pierre Hubaux, Stefan Katzenbeisser, Bradley Malin, and Gene Tsudik

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 5, Issue 10 (2016)


Abstract
This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 15431 "Genomic Privacy". The current rise of personalized medicine is based on increasing affordability and availability of individual genome sequencing. Impressive recent advances in genome sequencing have ushered a variety of revolutionary applications in modern healthcare and epidemiology. In particular, better understanding of the human genome as well as its relationship to diseases and response to treatments promise improvements in preventive and personalized healthcare. However, because of the human genome's highly sensitive nature, this progress raises important privacy and ethical concerns, which simply cannot be ignored. A digitized genome represents one of the most sensitive types of human (personal) identification data. Even worse, a genome contains information about its owner’s close relatives. The Dagstuhl seminar 15431 brought together computer scientists, bioinformaticians, geneticists and ethical experts to discuss the key security and privacy challenges imposed by the storage of large volumes of genetic data.

Genomic Privacy (Dagstuhl Seminar 13412)

Authors: Kay Hamacher, Jean Pierre Hubaux, and Gene Tsudik

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 3, Issue 10 (2014)


Abstract
Recent advances in genomics prompt a formidable privacy challenge: As the price of a complete genome profile has plummeted to as low as 99 USD for genome-wide genotyping, wide-spread usage of genomic information is about to become reality. Substantial progress is expected in the near future in terms of improved diagnoses and better preventive medicine. The impact of the increased availability of genomic information on privacy, however, is unprecedented, for obvious reasons: First, genetic conditions and the predisposition to specific diseases (such as Alzheimer's) can be revealed. Second, a person's genomic information leaks substantial information about his relatives. Third, complex privacy issues can arise if DNA analysis is used for criminal investigations, epidemiological research, and personalized medicine purposes. This report documents the program and the outcomes of the Dagstuhl Seminar 13412 "Genomic Privacy". The goal of the seminar was to bring together leading researchers, from different areas of academia and industry. The seminar welcomed participants from computer science, bioinformatics, genetics, ethics and medical fields. Through a series of presentations, discussions, and working groups, the seminar attempted to provide a coherent picture of the field, which transcends the borders of disciplines. The participants discussed many aspects of genomic privacy and jointly identified the main requirements and the possible technical solutions for protecting genomic data.
