The MalariaGEN resource centre provides scientific and operational support for the research and training activities of the network. This includes responsibility for the stewardship of samples and data contributed to consortial and community projects. The resource centre is based primarily at Oxford University and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, with some members at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Wellcome-Mahidol Unit in Bangkok.
The lab team is responsible for secure archival of samples, for driving forward large-scale genotyping and sequencing experiments, and supporting MalariaGEN investigators in laboratory methods and data management. Current team members>>
The informatics team is building secure web-based systems for managing and integrating large amounts of data, with user-friendly web tools to assist MalariaGEN investigators to analyse complex genetic and genomic datasets, and to integrate these with clinical and epidemiological data.
