Title: Privacy-preserving genomic relatedness test: a new cryptographic solution
Recent DNA sequencing technologies allow us to obtain large-scale
genomic data efficiently. Especially, personal genome analysis is
gathering a lot of attention due to its great potential benefit in the
development of biology and medical science. Despite the high
expectations, it is an emerging problem to develop efficient secure
methods to handle personal genome data without compromising privacy. In
this talk, we introduce a new cryptographic solution to protect personal
genomic privacy while the genomic data is taken into relatedness test.
Being different from traditional two/multi-party computation and fully
homomorphic approaches, our solution is explored into another efficient
way to guarantee personal privacy.
