Have held occasional special lectures open to the public: 'We host pre-arranged visits for more than 2000 students (generally A-level and GCSE), teachers and members of the community each year. Visitors can meet scientific staff, tour the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus and some of its high-throughput facilities, and can participate in an increasing number of educational experiences including ethical debates and computer-based activities. A visit to the Sanger Institute is free of charge. With our current resources, we can arrange visits by groups only; unless we are hosting a special public event, we are unable to invite individuals or small parties onto the site.'
