Browse our collection of Flash animations that illustrate how the human genome was sequenced, some of the processes and techniques used in sequencing genomes at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and how the DNA code of the human genome is stored and used in our bodies and cells.

Our "For Teachers" section shows how these animations can be used in support of the UK AS and A2 Biology curricula.

If you require a Flash plugin, you can download it from here.
