Ahead of #WorldCancerDay, our Director Sir Mike Stratton unveiled a plaque celebrating those involved in the landmark discovery of the #BRCA2 #Cancer gene in 1995 🎉
 
Prof Stratton led the research at the @ICR_London which used @sangerinstitute sequencing 🧬

Our latest blog features Cristina Ariani @MalariaGEN, discussing #malaria surveillance.

MalariaGEN have just released 20k+ whole-genome sequences of P. falciparum, including samples taken from dried blood spots using a technique that Cristina developed.
