UCSC Genome Browser posts the coronavirus genome

Researchers can now use the Browser’s features to see genetic code at any scale and add annotations for global collaboration

Unraveling Evolutionary Patterns

We are using genomics to uncover clues about species extinction, to learn how to save vulnerable populations and to see what this teaches us about our future on earth.

Identifying the Underpinnings of Disease

Diseases like cancer have a unique genetic signature that can be digitized, deconstructed and compared with healthy biology. It’s a clinical problem with a computer science solution.

Defining Data Sharing Standards with 600+ Organizational Members

We have led the effort to define genomics data-sharing standards by co-founding the GA4GH, with more than 600 organizational members from more than 40 countries
