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 Publications

Sanger Instititute Highlights Interactive PDF

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.
