The goal of the viral genomics and bioinformatics team is to lead the development of novel sequencing and analytical approaches focused on studying viruses and virus-host interactions. High-throughput sequencing technologies provide ways to look in great detail at virus-host systems, in order to gain a better understanding of viral diseases. These new technologies generate huge amounts of data that require expert knowledge to process and to extract biologically meaningful results.
The MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR) has been running a successful training course on Viral Bioinformatics and Genomics annually since 2015. Unfortunately applications are now closed for 2018 but we will be running courses in the future, if you would to be kept informed about our courses, Please fill in this short form.
