About Us

Your Genome is the place for you to find out everything you want to know about DNA, genes and genomes. From the basic biology to the challenging ethical issues, learn with our free interactive resources.

You’ll be able to find out what a genome is and how we sequence the DNA from an organism. You’ll also be able to discover different career paths in genomics and explore what genetics can tell us about an individual and a population and why this can sometimes throw up some tricky ethical questions and debates.

Your Genome is produced by Wellcome Connecting Science, part of the same Wellcome-funded organisation as the Wellcome Sanger Institute. We are based on the Wellcome Genome Campus in Cambridgeshire.

Wellcome Connecting Science’s mission is to enable everyone to explore genomic science and its impact on research, health and society. We form collaborations and work with partners from across the globe to ensure our impact and reach is as wide as possible.
