The Wellcome Sanger Institute is a world-leading genomics research centre, based on the Wellcome Genome Campus, arguably the largest single-site community of expertise in Genomes and BioData in the world. We undertake large-scale research that forms the foundations of knowledge in biology and medicine. We are open and collaborative; our data, results, tools and technologies are shared across the globe to advance science.
Our ambition is vast – we take on projects that are not possible anywhere else.
We use the power of genome sequencing to understand and harness the information in DNA.
The Institute’s science is embodied as five Programmes encompassing areas of biology and disease in which genome sequences will be transformative. It is designed in this fashion, with support from Management Operations, Scientific Operations, and one of the most powerful supercomputing infrastructures in Europe, to maximise the breadth of scientific impact and achieve science at scale.
