The Wellcome Sanger Institute is a world leader in genome research that delivers insights into human and pathogen biology that change science and medicine through:
- Being an ‘ideas factory’; conceiving new questions to address through genomics and biological science at scale.
- Driving genomics technology development and implementation.
- Innovating genomic data aggregation and analysis.
- Large-scale DNA sequence and phenotype data production from humans, pathogens and cells.
- Addressing scientific questions underpinning health issues of low and middle income countries.
- Training scientists and clinicians in genome sciences.
- Leading global research initiatives with international partners.
- Being at the centre of a collaborative network of science.
Sanger Seminar Series
We are hosting a series of monthly freely available and open virtual seminars, showcasing how our researchers are tackling some of the greatest challenges in human health and disease. From using genomic approaches to map all cell types in the human body, understand how cancer develops, and track the evolution and spread of global diseases, our senior scientists and faculty will present the latest developments in their field.
Sanger Institute Highlights 2019-20
In the 2019/20 Sanger Institute Highlights we showcase the key discoveries and future research interests of our Scientific Programmes, each exploring a major area of research with a particular biological, disease or analytic focus. The studies provide vital insights into human, parasite and microbe evolution, cellular growth and activity, and the processes that underlie mutation and tumour formation. In addition the Institute’s latest research programme, the Tree of Life, is exploring the diversity of complex life.
The Highlights document also explores how the Institute promotes, supports and disseminates genomic knowlege and practices to benefit academic research, medical practice and society, by utilising:
