Genome Cloaking Preserves Privacy While Enabling Diagnosis

Sequencing genomes to diagnose puzzling symptoms presents a conundrum: how to interpret whether a person’s genotype causes the syndrome without comparison to many other human genome sequences? Put another way, a gene variant (mutation) that
