Researchers transmit genome sequence using quantum cryptography

Tohoku University Medical Megabank Organisation (ToMMo) has demonstrated the world’s first quantum cryptography transmission of whole-genome sequence data in collaboration with Toshiba. The transmission exceeded several hundred gigabytes demonstrating that quantum encryption technology is now capable of large-capacity data transmission, opening up practical applications in genomic medicine and research.
