Genomes to Life
Our leading expertise and advanced technological capability enable us to understand interconnected biological systems, from genotypes to phenotypes and their environmental interactions.
At Liverpool we have leading expertise and state-of-the-art instrumentation to do hypothesis driven research, whilst gathering big data across different platforms. Using cutting edge technology to acquire, analyse and interpret large scale data we work from the molecular, to the individual and population levels.
Ultimately we enable and push the boundaries of our understanding of how the complexity of the genome can be interpreted in the context of the environment. We apply this capability and expertise to address global challenges such as global health, food security, environmental change and resource sustainability.
We are not only using the latest technologies but we also do research in the –omics and bioinformatics fields and develop these technologies further in a truly transformative way. With an open access model for collaboration we build productive partnerships locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, delivering world leading science and solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
