June 07, 2019

Congratulations to Elizaveta Verzhbitskaya for being awarded a certificate from the Institute for Research in Schools for her contribution to the Genome Decoders Project, supported by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.

Elizaveta has annotated at least one gene of the Human Whipworm as part of a global goal to decode its genome.  Once the genome is fully decoded, scientists will be able to develop drugs to target this harmful parasite.
