We are a highly collaborative and international group. This allows us to take maximum advantage of the diverse skillsets within the team, which currently includes geneticists, computer scientists, immunologists, molecular biologists and clinicians. We also collaborate closely with other groups at Sanger (e.g. the Campbell, Soranzo and Trynka teams).
