The Sars Centre will be expanding significantly over the next few years. Future plans include an extension of research activities to marine invertebrates as well as to marine bioinformatics, and an increase in the number of research groups. As part of the EMBL contract, the Centre will establish an international PhD programme in collaboration with the UoB and EMBL.
