Frederick Sanger, OM, born August 13 1918, died November 19 2013
“I believe that we have been doing this not primarily to achieve riches or even honour, but rather because we were interested in the work, enjoyed doing it and felt very strongly that it was worthwhile.”
GATC Biotech would like to pay tribute to Frederick Sanger, OM, who revolutionised science and medicine through DNA and protein sequencing. His work unlocked the chemical secrets of genes, still carried out in our laboratories today, and laid the foundation for genetic engineering.
Sanger was awarded two Nobel Prizes for chemistry in his lifetime, his first one in 1958 for the first complete protein sequence of insulin. The second, in 1980, awarded for related work carried out in Cambridge, where he developed an ingenious method to work out the basic chemical ‘reading’ of DNA. This method enables us to read the chemical sequence of DNA encoding the information of life. On behalf of all employees at GATC Biotech, we pay tribute to Frederick Sanger. His legacy will influence our scientific work and genomics for many years to come.
