About the Centre

Our Aims

  • Global surveillance of pathogens using whole genome sequencing.
  • Understanding drug resistance, emergence and spread.
  • Providing actionable data.

Our Approach

  • Structured large-scale pathogen surveys and sequencing.
  • Provision of tools for data integration, visualisation and interpretation.

The Centre for Genomic Pathogen Surveillance (CGPS) is a joint initiative between the Big Data Institute and the Wellcome Genome Campus, and is funded by Wellcome.
