The archives of Genetic Alliance UK (formerly known as the Genetic Interest Group) have been catalogued and are now available to researchers at the Wellcome Library. The catalogue of the collection can be searched online through the Archives and Manuscripts online catalogue.

The Genetic Alliance UK archive consists of material relating to the organisation from their founding in 1989 right through to their recent name change, which took place in June of this year. It includes documents originally produced for internal circulation, such as minutes of meetings, and those created to be seen outside the organisation, for example newsletters and publications. The collection of publications produced by Genetic Alliance UK, both alone, and in conjunction with other organisations, is a particularly rich source of information. A few of these publications can be viewed in digital form on the Genetic Alliance UK Website

The Wellcome Library, along with our parent body the Wellcome Trust, has a stated interest in genetics and public engagement. Genetic Alliance UK is an organisation that successfully brings these two things together. As such we look forward to a long and productive relationship with Genetic Alliance UK and their members.
