Scientific resources

As part of its own research or as part of collaborative projects, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute produces raw data such as DNA sequences, develops databases such as Ensembl, and generates biological resources such as embryonic stem cells.

These are available from these pages with the minimum of conditions. You can find out how to access our technologies: most often this is through collaboration. You can also access a catalogue of our research papers and other science publications.
