The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (formerly the Sanger Centre) is a genome research centre in the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Cambridgeshire, England. In classical genetics the genome of a Diploid Organism including Eukarya refers to a full set of chromosomes or genes in a Gamete, thereby The Wellcome Trust Genome Campus is a scientific research campus located in the village of Hinxton, Cambridgeshire. History Cambridgeshire is noted as the site of some of the earliest known Neolithic permanent settlement in the United Kingdom, along with sites at Fengate England is a Country which is part of the United Kingdom.
