Genome Lates: Slowing the Spread: How genomics can help us understand COVID-19

Join us for the last in the Human Genome Project anniversary season of Lates, we'll be hearing about the scientific effort to map the genome of COVID-19


Thu 26th Nov, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

In these unprecedented times we look to science for answers. Since lockdown, staff at the Wellcome Genome Campus have joined the fight against the global COVID-19 pandemic in a national genomics sequencing effort to understand and track the spread of the virus.

Join Dr Cordelia Langford and Prof Dominic Kwiatkowski in conversation with Dallas Campbell for the last in our Genome Lates event, a special Human Genome Project anniversary season. They will be discussing the impact of this vital collaborative effort and the challenges of doing groundbreaking science in times of social distancing.

Cordelia and Dominic are from the Wellcome Sanger Institute, where Cordelia is Director of Science Operations, and Dominic is Head of the Parasites and Microbes Programme. Dallas Campbell is a presenter and author, well known for presenting some of British television’s most popular factual programmes including: Bang Goes the Theory and The Sky at Night.
