More than 3 million genomes! 🧬

The UK has uploaded over 3 million genome sequences to @GISAID

Thanks to the @MRCClimb team for their amazing job updating daily the genome counter and to
@sangerinstitute @NHS @UKHSA @PublicHealthW @publichealthni @P_H_S_Official for the data

📢 Sarah Teichmann is co-founder and co-leader of the @humancellatlas consortium

This international collaboration is aiming to map the entire human body at a cellular level 👤
