The G10K consortium, an international consortium of tissue curators, biologists, conservationists, genome scientists, computer scientists, outreach educators, and more leads the VGP. Dr. Erich Jarvis is the current chairperson of the G10K consortium. The G10K leadership and community of scientists built an infrastructure from sample collection to genome sequencing, assembly, annotation, alignments, public data releases, and analyses for publications. In addition to the VGL, the genome sequencing hubs also include the Sanger Institute in the UK and the Max Planck Institute in Dresden, Germany.
