This blog gives a glimpse inside the Wellcome Sanger Institute – the leading genomic research centre in Europe.

A leader in the Human Genome Project, we are now focused on understanding the role of genetics in health and disease by using the latest genomic and genetic techniques. Our passion for discovery drives our quest to uncover the basis of genetic and infectious disease. We aim to provide results that can be translated into diagnostics, treatments or therapies that reduce global health burdens.

The Institute is a charitably funded genomic research centre located in Hinxton, nine miles south of Cambridge in the UK.
