Human genome pioneer dies
 

The British genome pioneer Sir John Sulston has died, the Sanger Institute has confirmed.
He came to international prominence as the British face of the project to decode the human genome.
Sir John won a Nobel Prize in 2002 for his contribution to the understanding of how genes control cell division and cell death in the nematode worm.
He also helped found the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute at Hinxton near Cambridge.
The Institute now runs the largest genomics programme in Europe, and the laboratories there bear his name.
He was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2017.
