Caption: John Sulston. Portrait of Dr John Sulston (born 1942), British molecular biologist. Sulston is the director of the Sanger Centre in Cambridge, England, which is mapping the human genome. He is standing in the main sequencing room of the Centre here with some of the automatic sequencers. The Sanger Centre was founded by the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council. As part of the human genome project, the genomic information obtained is made publicly available as soon as it is confirmed. Sulston was also involved in determining the complete genome of the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans. Photographed in 1999.
