19 May 16:00BST - Professor Phil H Jones - Sanger Seminar and Q&A session
Inner evolution: How cancer associated mutants colonise our tissues and what we can do about it.
Ageing human tissues are colonized by mutants linked to cancer, understanding how this happens points to ways we can get rid of mutant cells and cut cancer risk.
In this free, openly available Seminar and Q&A, Professor Phil H Jones, a senior group leader in the Cancer, Ageing and Somatic Mutation research programme, will discuss his research and discoveries.
Our 2020/2021 Highlights document
Over the past year we have provided new insights into human, parasite and microbe evolution, cellular development, and the mutational processes that lead to cancer. We supported the UK's national COVID-19 genomic surveillance efforts and delivered reference genomes for a wide range of UK species as part of the Darwin Tree of Life project ...more
COVID-19 research at the Sanger Institute
We are committed to tracking, understanding and combatting COVID-19. Our staff sequence thousands of virus genomes and use the data to trace transmission, inform public health measures and monitor for new variants of the virus. We also work to understand how the virus interacts with our cells, and to develop new diagnostics
