COVID-19 research at the Sanger Institute

We are committed to tracking, understanding and combatting COVID-19. Our staff sequence thousands of virus genomes and use the data to trace transmission, inform public health measures and monitor for new variants of the virus. We also work to understand how the virus interacts with our cells, and to develop new diagnostics

Watch Again: Dr Roser Vento-Tormo's online seminar and Q&A

Mapping tissues in vivo and in vitro one cell at a time:

Tissue microenvironment shapes cellular identity and function, understanding how this happens in vivo can help us engineer novel in vitro models.

Dr Roser Vento-Tormo’s research is focused on the adaptation of immune cells in tissues and their function in steady state and inflammation. Her team uses genomics, spatial transcriptomics and bioinformatics tools to reconstruct the microenvironment that will shape immune cellular identity and function.

Congratulations to the 11 teams shortlisted for the next @CancerGrand Challenges awards! Each team now has a chance of receiving up to £20m to develop smarter, faster, and bolder ways to solve some of cancer’s toughest challenges: https://bit.ly/35gxCBO #CancerGrandChallenges

thrilled that our new multifunction sequencing tool for Anopheles paper is out! and so excited to use it -- maybe even on your mosquitoes -- Please RT this thread and email us if your work could benefit from approach described in link and thread below. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/1755-0998.13436

New #Covid19 variants could potentially jeopardise a lot of the work that has been done so far to contain the pandemic.

A scientist from @sangerinstitute explains how genomic surveillance can help us track and contain them.
