Dr. Gibson

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what estimate she has made of the share of the world's effort in human genome sequencing which is being undertaken in the UK. [44980]

Mr. Battle

We estimate that the UK undertake one third of the world's effort in sequencing the human genome. The UK contribution is made primarily through the work of the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council.
