As part of BBSRC’s long-term strategic planning, we are seeking input from active researchers, industrialists and policy makers on UK arthropod vector biology and vector borne disease (VBD) research, training, infrastructure and translational activities focussing on animal, plant and human pathogens.


Scientists at TGAC, alongside European partners, have created a cutting-edge, open source community for the life sciences. BioJavaScript (BioJS) is a free, accessible software library that develops visualisation tools for different types of biological data.


A group of leading UK research organisations has today issued an initial joint statement in support of the continued use of CRISPR-Cas9 and other genome-editing techniques in preclinical research. This includes the use of the technology for research purposes in human reproductive cells and early embryos, where this is fully justified, scientifically and ethically, and within the confines of the law.
