Our 2021/2022 Highlights document
Over the past year we have provided new insights into human, parasite and microbe evolution, cellular development, and the mutational processes that lead to cancer. We supported the UK's national COVID-19 genomic surveillance efforts and delivered reference genomes for a wide range of UK species as part of the Darwin Tree of Life project ...more
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.
