Pathogen surveillance is a crucial part of early-stage and ongoing responses to COVID-19. The UK consortium on COVID-19 genomics (COG) aims to link local sequencing centres with large scale facilities from across the UK to apply real-time genomic epidemiology to our understanding and ability to respond to the pandemic.
Our study in Nature Microbiology indicates that the major driver of the carbapenem resistant K. pneumoniae epidemic in Europe has been transmission of hospital-adapted clones through healthcare networks.

@bioinformAnt @cake_ray & @HarryHarste are visiting us @UniIbadan from @sangerinstitute in furtherance of our @OfficialNIHR supported @GHRUamr genomic surveillance project. Great having them & we’ve made tremendous progress in the first 2 days https://t.co/6t3zi9dJK9
We're tracking antibiotic resistant bugs around the world with the @TheCGPS team from @sangerinstitute at #CamSciFest. We're using real data in @MyMicroreact, the platform used by the scientists. #AntibioticResistance #CSF2019 https://t.co/aEuYNrE62V
Combining the strengths of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the Centre for Genomic Pathogen Surveillance will improve the monitoring and tracking of infectious disease across Europe.
That's a wrap in Bogotà - my 2nd stop (Latin America) __on the @GHRUamr genomics implementation roadshow. An unforgettable week of @illumina gen-seq training, knowledge share and team building with @pilarxavier and team at @SomosAGROSAVIA. Oh, and two four-legged friends for life! https://t.co/6moAVb1uko
A WHO Technical Note has been published that will enable health authorities to make informed choices on the most appropriate molecular tests in order to achieve a clearer picture of antimicrobial resistance globally.
Completed a fabulous 2 weeks of genomics implementation training at @RITMPH AMR Surveillance Reference Laboratory in the Philippines. The local team and I are excited as ever as we blitz toward building a full-fledged sustainable genome sequencing suite! @GHRUamr @TheCGPS https://t.co/ZvU1jPWUPn
We outline our recent experience with public engagement — what we did and what we learned.

Huge Congratulations to @Vincent43115474 on a successful Viva today with @EsteeTorok and @jrossfitz examining. We're all very happy! https://t.co/YpOaQBjh3s
Genomic approach could help doctors monitor emerging resistance and prescribe most effective antibiotics in the future.
