In recent years, whole genome sequencing (WGS) evolved from a futuristic-sounding research project to an increasingly affordable technology for determining complete genome sequences of complex organisms, including humans. This prompts a wide range of revolutionary applications, as WGS is a promising means for improving modern healthcare and providing a better understanding of the human genome, in particular its relation to diseases and response to treatments. However, this progress raises… Expand
Genomic Privacy and the Rise of a New Research Community
Recent breakthroughs in whole genome sequencing (WGS) have laid the foundations to improve modern healthcare and attain a better understanding of genetic features, as well as their relation toExpand
Genomic Privacy and the Rise of a New Research Community
TLDR
The increased affordability of WGS prompts institutions worldwide to build large datasets of digitized genomes, often obtained from donors, and make them available for different research purposes, thus breeding a novel market for consumer-oriented genomic tests. Expand
Patient privacy in the genomic era.
TLDR
Some important privacy issues associated with human genomic information and methods put in place to address them are discussed. Expand
Systematizing Genomic Privacy Research - A Critical Analysis
TLDR
This paper introduces and executes a structured methodology to systematize the current knowledge around genome privacy research, focusing on privacy-enhancing technologies used in the context of testing, storing, and sharing genomic data, while selecting a representative sample of the community's work. Expand
Systematizing Genome Privacy Research: A Privacy-Enhancing Technologies Perspective
TLDR
A structured methodology is relied on to contextualize and provide a critical analysis of the current knowledge on privacy-enhancing technologies used for testing, storing, and sharing genomic data, using a representative sample of the work published in the past decade. Expand
An Exploratory Ethnographic Study of Issues and Concerns with Whole Genome Sequencing
TLDR
An exploratory ethnographic study of users' perception of privacy and ethical issues with WGS, as well as their attitude toward different WGS programs, which shows that users exhibit common trust concerns and fear of discrimination, and demand to retain strict control over their genetic information. Expand
Privacy in the Genomic Era
TLDR
An enumeration of the challenges for genome data privacy is enumerated and a framework to systematize the analysis of threats and the design of countermeasures as the field moves forward is presented. Expand
Users' Attitudes, Perception, and Concerns in the Era of Whole Genome Sequencing
TLDR
The perception of genetic tests, the attitude toward different WGS programs, as well as the perception of privacy and ethical issues with WGS are assessed. Expand
Fast and Private Genomic Testing for Disease Susceptibility
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an alternative SNP encoding can simplify (private) computations, and make patient-side computation on a smartcard device extremely efficient, and a second protocol variant, based on secret sharing, further reduces online computation. Expand
Privacy and Security in the Genomic Era
TLDR
This short tutorial will help computer scientists better understand the privacy and security challenges in today's genomic era and present the high level descriptions of the proposed solutions to protect the privacy of genomic data. Expand

Countering GATTACA: efficient and secure testing of fully-sequenced human genomes
TLDR
This paper begins to address genomic privacy by focusing on three important applications: Paternity Tests, Personalized Medicine, and Genetic Compatibility Tests, and proposes a set of efficient techniques based on private set operations that allow in in silico some operations that are currently performed via in vitro methods, in a secure fashion. Expand
The Complexities of Genomic Identifiability
TLDR
The need to re-examine the current paradigms for managing the potential identifiability of genomic and other "omic"-type data produced by high-throughput methods is revealed. Expand

TLDR
There are challenges from both a scientific and a policy perspective to personalized health care; however, they will be confronted and solved with the certainty that the science behind genomic medicine is sound and the practice of medicine that it informs is evidence based. Expand
Genodroid: are privacy-preserving genomic tests ready for prime time?
TLDR
This paper designs a personal genomic toolkit (called GenoDroid), implements it on the Android platform, assess its performance, and conducts a pilot usability study that yields some interesting results. Expand
An Open Access Database of Genome-wide Association Results
TLDR
This database provides access to a full gene-annotated GWAS database which could be used for further querying, analyses or integration with other genomic information, and finds considerable heterogeneity in information available from GWAS suggesting the wider community could benefit from standardization and centralization of results reporting. Expand
Systems biology, proteomics, and the future of health care: toward predictive, preventative, and personalized medicine.
TLDR
In this review, systems biology is defined, the current capabilities of proteomics are discussed and some of the necessary milestones for moving systems biology and proteomics into mainstream health care are highlighted. Expand
Identifying Personal Genomes by Surname Inference
TLDR
It is reported that surnames can be recovered from personal genomes by profiling short tandem repeats on the Y chromosome (Y-STRs) and querying recreational genetic genealogy databases and it is shown that a combination of a surname with other types of metadata, such as age and state, can be used to triangulate the identity of the target.

Parasites represent a major selective force for interleukin genes and shape the genetic predisposition to autoimmune conditions
TLDR
It is shown that helminths have been a major selective force on a subset of interleukin (IL)/IL receptor genes (IL genes), and six risk alleles for inflammatory bowel (IBD) or celiac disease are significantly correlated with micropathogen richness, which support the hygiene hypothesis for IBD and provide a large set of putative targets for susceptibility to helminth infections.

Genome-wide analysis of genetic loci associated with Alzheimer disease.
TLDR
Although CLU and PICALM were confirmed to be associated with AD in this independent sample, they did not improve the ability of a model that included age, sex, and APOE to predict incident AD. Expand
Learning your identity and disease from research papers: information leaks in genome wide association study
TLDR
It is shown that individuals can actually be identified from even a relatively small set of statistics, as those routinely published in GWAS papers, and it is found that those attacks can succeed even when the precisions of the statistics are low and part of data is missing. Expand
