Wellcome Sanger Institute

16 June - Dr Roser Vento-Tormo - Sanger Seminar and Q&A session

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 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.

Talk followed by live Q&A starts at 16:00BST on 16 June

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

As a sequencing hub for the national @CovidGenomicsUK effort, we’re often asked how many #SARSCoV2 genomes we sequence.

These are the numbers, as of this week 🧬⤵️
