Dr Victoria Carr

Principal Bioinformatician

I am a Principal Bioinformatician working on understanding pathogen detection and emergence in the microbiome, and high quality reproducible research practices for genomic surveillance.


Victoria leads the software development of the JUNO project, a genomic data tracking and data sharing platform for the global surveillance of the pathogen Streptococcus agalactiae. She develops bioinformatics pipelines and informatics training for the Bentley group and collaborators.

Since joining the Sanger, Victoria’s research interests have been on detection and prediction of emerging pathogens from the microbiome, with a focus on the interactions between antimicrobial resistance and mobile genetic elements in metagenomes.
