Two new projects, Science for Everyone and Adopt a Scientist, aim to challenge unconscious bias around science and science careers.
We spoke to some of the team planning to sequence the DNA of every plant species in Britain and Ireland about the diversity of plant genomes and the importance of plant science in the face of global challenges.
To celebrate International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated annually on 11 February, we asked some of our female staff to tell us about their work, and what being a woman in science means to them.
To celebrate International Day of Women & Girls in Science, we sat down with Sanger Associate Director, Dr Julia Wilson to talk about her career so far and being a woman in science.
