The rapid progress in genome sequencing has led to high availability of genomic data. However, due to growing privacy concerns about the participant's sensitive information, accessing results and data of genomic studies is restricted to only trusted individuals. On the other hand, paving the way to biomedical discoveries requires granting open access to genomic databases. Privacy-preserving mechanisms can be a solution for granting wider access to such data while protecting their owners. In particular, there has been growing interest in applying the concept of differential privacy (DP) while sharing summary statistics about genomic data. DP provides a mathematically rigorous approach but it does not consider the dependence between tuples in a database, which may degrade the privacy guarantees offered by the DP.

Much research has focused on privacy concern, which describes individuals' motivation to protect personal information from unauthorized access, collection, storage, and use. Variation in privacy conce...
Provision of security and privacy to genomic data is a key issue in current genomic information representation. Existing formats do not give a solution to these issues (or they provide a partial one),...
The authors review literature that can inform the design of better privacy policies. The review is focused around three privacy principles central to consumer-firm interactions. These privacy principl...
In multi-party deep learning, multiple participants jointly train a deep learning model through a central server to achieve common objectives without sharing their private data. Recently, a significan...
The massive reach of social networks (SNs) has hidden their potential concerns, primarily those related to information privacy. Users increasingly rely on social networks for more than merely interact...
This project aimed to study the use of the multi-level antimicrobial coating in a working hospital environment. Patient privacy curtains from a public sector hospital were coated and insta...
The premise for the study is that a tailored approach for rural YMSM (young men who have sex with men), addressing known barriers of transportation, access to providers, and privacy, is mo...

The privacy of information and its protection against unauthorized disclosure.
The state of being free from intrusion or disturbance in one's private life or affairs. (Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed, 1993)
The protection of genetic information about an individual, family, or population group, from unauthorized disclosure.
Using certified ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS technology to improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce HEALTHCARE DISPARITIES; engage patients and families in their health care; improve care coordination; improve population and public health; while maintaining privacy and security.
Differential thermal analysis in which the sample compartment of the apparatus is a differential calorimeter, allowing an exact measure of the heat of transition independent of the specific heat, thermal conductivity, and other variables of the sample.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
