Genome cloaking can protect patient privacy, Stanford researchers say

Researchers from Stanford University have developed a method called “genome cloaking” that uses cryptography to protect patients’ genetic information while allowing researchers access to specific gene mutations. The method hides almost 99% of genetic information, alleviating privacy and discrimination concerns. Patients can encrypt their genetic data and upload it to the cloud, where researchers can analyze the data and reveal only necessary gene variants, ensuring that only the patient has access to their complete set of genetic data. This method could help patients overcome concerns about sharing their genomic data.
