DNA Pipelines Operations are responsible for delivering the operational requirements necessary to deliver the institute's scientific strategy. This is at a scale of several hundred thousand samples a year, submitted by a large number of internal and external collaborators and consortia, and processed across several different technology platforms. There are 4 major components of DNA Pipelines Operations (Illumina Highthroughput, Illumina Bespoke, Sample Management & Supplementary Platforms), each led by a Team Leader. These teams play a vital role in delivering important strategic collaborations. State of the art technologies and expertise, plus critical data storage, tracking and informatics are fundamental components of the four coordinated facilities.
The team leaders are drawn from a range of technical, scientific and life science disciplines. There experience and expertise in driving operations and change comes from a variety of commercial and academic backgrounds. Their energy, enthusiasm and belief in what we are trying to achieve as an institute, ensures that our operation remains internationally competitive.
