Analysis of next-generation sequencing data
CGAT assists UK groups in their analysis of next-generation sequencing data. CGAT provides expertise, computational capacity and a dedicated post-doctoral researcher. CGAT is a scientific programme and not a service. Assistance is provided on a collaborative basis, and focused on gleaning important biological conclusions from large data sets.
Training in computational genomics
CGAT trains scientists at post-doctoral level in the analysis of next-generation sequencing data. Post-doctoral trainees in the CGAT group benefit from in-house training, but also the biological insights of collaborators. Working on a variety of projects, trainees accumulate expertise in genome sequencing-related fields, as well as high profile publications.
MRC Sequencing Hubs
CGAT has no sequencing capability of its own. However, CGAT is part of MRC strategy to invest in next-generation sequencing technologies. The central pillar of MRC strategy is its funding of four sequencing hubs across the UK (see the MRC announcement). CGAT provides expertise that complements the hubs’ existing analytical strengths whilst extending UK capacity in the interpretation of genome-scale data sets.
