The Tree of Life Programme investigates the diversity of complex organisms (eukaryotes - organisms that have a nucleus) through sequencing and cellular technologies. We generate and use high-quality genome sequences to explore the evolution of life, provide the raw materials for new biotechnology and deliver tools and understanding for biodiversity conservation.
