25 species revealed for 25 Genomes Project
£3.9m project to support elimination of the world’s leading infectious cause of blindness
Stronger-SAFE is a £3.9m Wellcome Trust funded project that will increase our understanding of how trachoma is transmitted, and hopefully lead to the development and testing of new, more effective interventions and treatment approaches. Professor Nick Thomson, from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), is part of the team that are using new DNA sequencing approaches to better understand how this disease is spread.
