Sanger Institute

The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (formerly the Sanger Centre) is a genome research centre in the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Cambridgeshire, England. It was set up in 1992 by the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council, the purpose of which is stated as "to further our knowledge of genomes, and in particular to play a substantial role in the sequencing and interpretation of the human genome. This information will underpin research on human biology and disease in this century and beyond" [cite web|url=|title=Sanger Institute - General Information|publisher=Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute|accessdate=2008-06-24] and was named after the double Nobel Laureate biochemist Frederick Sanger. The Nobel Laureate John Sulston acted as director of the institute upon its inception until 2000.

Besides its involvement in a large number of genome sequencing projects, the institute hosts many different (large-scale) research projects and is regarded as a key player in the international research community.Fact|date=June 2008

The projects include:
* Human Genome Project [cite web|url=|title=Human Genome Project|publisher=Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute|accessdate=2008-06-24]
* Cancer Genome Project [cite web|url=|title=Cancer Genome Project|publisher=Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute|accessdate=2008-06-24]
* Genes to Cognition Project [cite web|url=|title=G2C::Consortium|publisher=Genes to Cognition |accessdate=2008-06-24]
* [ Ensembl] The Ensembl Genome Browser
* [ Pathogen Sequencing]

PhD students trained at the institute are registered at the University of Cambridge.
