BGI partners with the University of Birmingham
Date:8/1/2012

The University of Birmingham and BGI have announced a major joint initiative in environmental and human health research.

The new venture will provide a world-class research and training centre on Birmingham's campus that integrates state-of-the-art approaches in molecular biology, including DNA sequencing, metabolomics and bioinformatics. Research will focus on organism responses to environmental change through to disease susceptibility and treatment.

This initiative expands the University of Birmingham's recently announced 2 million research investment into the fields of environmental genomics and metabolomics to link genes and metabolite functions to the fate of natural populations coping with environmental challenges. The longer term impacts will be from using this information as "early warning system" to better protect human and environmental health from chemical pollution and other stressors including climatic change.

This initiative also builds upon Birmingham's Stratified Medicine and Systems Science for Health programs. The West Midlands Regional Genetics Laboratory, the largest NHS genetics facility in the UK, is at the forefront of introducing new genomic technologies into clinical pathways to transform the delivery of healthcare in the UK. The initiative will provide tools and additional skill sets to integrate genomics into mainstream medicine such as in cancer treatment.

Genomics has also been at the heart of bacteriological research in Birmingham for over a decade, now within a new Institute of Microbiology and Infection and an NIHR-funded Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre. This new BGI-Birmingham initiative will improve our understanding of the microbial communities that colonise the human body, evaluating how these change in health and disease with potential to augment, or even replace, traditional diagnostic bacteriology.

As one of the world's largest genomics organisations,
