Welcome to this first edition of the BY-COVID newsletter. BY-COVID is an exciting new project that will connect genomics data with public health and real-world healthcare data to support research and genomic surveillance of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.
Data access is at the heart of this project, which builds upon the COVID-19 Data Platform, run by EMBL-EBI, and the work to integrate public health data within the PHIRI project. The success of BY-COVID is driven by the diverse project partners that come together across disciplines to ensure that the work carried out is fit for purpose for life scientists, policy makers and public health specialists.
Thank you for connecting with us. As subscribers to this newsletter you’ll hear about the exciting milestones and developments occurring in this project, as well as news from our project partners on COVID-19 and infectious disease research developments.
