The DDD team at the Wellcome Sanger Institute wishes all families participating in the project well in these stressful and uncertain times as the Covid-19 pandemic affects the UK and much of the world. Please find attached a document prepared by the UK Genetics services with advice for patients with rare or undiagnosed genetic disorders in relation to Covid-19.

You may be interested to know that the Sanger Institute, where the DDD samples were processed, is now collaborating with expert groups across the country to analyse the genetic code of COVID-19 samples circulating in the UK, providing public health agencies with a unique tool to combat the virus.
