Protecting DNA Sequence Anonymity with Generalization Lattices

  title={Protecting DNA Sequence Anonymity with Generalization Lattices},
  author={Bradley A Malin},
The increased collection, storage, and analysis of person-specific DNA sequences poses serious challenges to the protection of the identities to which such sequences correspond. Compromise of DNA privacy via re-identification, the inference of explicit identity of the individual from which the DNA was derived, is dependent on unique features that may be inferred from a DNA sequence. In this paper we introduce a computational method for anonymizing a collection of person-specific DNA database… CONTINUE READING
