• Haplotype-based membership inference from summary genomic data

    3 monthes ago - By Oxford Journals

    AbstractMotivationThe availability of human genomic data, together with the enhanced capacity to process them, is leading to transformative technological advances in biomedical science and engineering. However, the public dissemination of such data has been difficult due to privacy concerns. Specifically, it has been shown that the presence of a human subject in a case group can be inferred from the shared summary statistics of the group, e.g. the allele frequencies, or even the presence/absence of genetic variants in the group. These methods rely on the availability of the target's...
