Our Vision

tree.jpgSanger Institute, Genome Research Limited

The Institute is a centre-stage, world leader in genome research and aims to deliver new insights into human and pathogen biology that change the course of biology and medicine. It will achieve this goal through:

  • Being an ‘ideas factory’; conceiving new biological questions to be addressed through genomics and large-scale biological science.
  • Being at the leading-edge of genomics technology development and implementation.
  • Innovation in aggregation, analysis and interpretation of large quantities of genomic data.
  • Large-scale data production; DNA sequence data will remain a major feature of our science but large-scale phenotype data from humans, mice, pathogens and cells will increasingly feature.
  • Addressing scientific questions underpinning health issues of low and middle income countries, including both infectious and non-communicable diseases.
  • Training of the next generation of scientists and clinicians in genome sciences.
  • Initiation of global collaborative research initiatives with international partners.
  • Being at the centre of a collaborative network of science.

Sanger Highlights 2016/17

In this year's Highlights, we focus on the key discoveries and future research interests of our scientific groups in the five new Institute Research Programmes:

  • Cancer, ageing and somatic mutation
  • Cellular genetics
  • Human genetics
  • Infection genomics
  • Malaria.

The interactive PDF also explores how the Institute promotes, supports and disseminates genomic knowlege and practices to benefit academic research, medical practice and society, by utilising:

  • Scale
  • Innovation
  • Culture
  • Influence
  • Connections.
