UCL Genetics Institute

UCL Genetics Institute (UGI) is a multi-faculty Centre dedicated to the analysis of Big Genetic Data.

Welcome

Our research is both fundamental and applied, and we believe there does not need to be a divide between the two. Important Science is by definition fundamental, and is also likely to have downstream applications.

We develop computational tools and apply them to large genetic datasets to address questions ranging from the origin and evolution of anatomically modern humans, the genetic determinants of various human diseases, improvement of crop varieties to antibiotic resistance in bacteria.
