Welcome Sanger Institute

The Wellcome Sanger Institute, previously known as The Sanger Centre and Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, is a non-profit British genomics and genetics research institute, primarily funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Researchers at the Wellcome Sanger Institute have an established track record of using genomic approaches to understand the genetic diversity and life history traits of NTD pathogens. Current and past researchers have driven the generation of reference genomes and resources for many NTD pathogens, undertaken large-scale phylogenetic and population genetic analyses to reveal novel insights into the transmission and evolutionary history of NTDs, and are currently developing sequencing-based diagnostic and surveillance tools to enhance the management of NTDs.
