Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF) has commissioned the creation of a comprehensive online library of the genomes of all meningococcal disease isolates for 2010/11 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, open to scientists anywhere in the world. The aim is to enable advancement in serogroup B meningococcal vaccine research, making a lasting contribution to MenB vaccine development. This has been, and continues to be a major focus of work at MRF, whose trustees place particular emphasis on research into prevention of serogroup B meningococcal disease.
Use of the MRF Genome Library data must be cited in any publication or presentation making use of it. The preferred format for citing this website in publications is:
This publication made use of the Meningitis Research Foundation Meningococcus Genome Library (http://www.meningitis.org/research/genome) developed by the Health Protection Agency, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the University of Oxford as a collaboration. The project is funded by Meningitis Research Foundation.
