Genomic Surveillance Unit

The Unit supports partners worldwide with practical tools for pandemic preparedness and local infectious disease control.

We develop, run, support and maintain open products: all the way from sample collection in the field, through high-throughput laboratory sequencing, to the delivery and interrogation of analysis-ready data.

Today some of our year 11 and year 13 students visited the Wellcome Sanger Institute to find out about their genome research that delivers insights into human, evolutionary and pathogen biology. They were also given an insight into different exciting careers. @engageWCS #Science

For #WorldNTDDay we spoke to Dr. Tess Attenborough about her work understanding the biology of #schistosomiasis, and the role of #genomics in the fight against Neglected Tropical Diseases.
