BSI response to Science Committee inquiry on STEM skills

Driven by the expansion of affordable next-generation sequencing technologies, deficiencies in computational and bioinformatics skills have led to an interpretation and analysis bottleneck which impedes the adoption of high-throughput technology in informing research on complex issues in immunology, such as in vaccines research and the development of new cancer immunotherapies. In this evidence to the Science Committee we highlight the STEM skills gap in this area and suggest practical means of addressing it, which includes the adoption of formal training programmes for postdoctoral students.
