A 3G Lab/Trigenix Trip to the Sanger Centre, Hinxton, Cambridgeshire - 23rd April 2004

Nosher, Craig and Nick from Trigenix head over to the Wellcome Institute's famous Sanger research centre at Hinxton, just off the bottom of the A11 in Cambridgeshire. Once there, we meet up with former 3G Lab sysadmin Dave Holland, who's now helping to look after Sanger's world-class massive data centre - the UK home to the Human Genome Sequencing project, with half a Petabyte of storage. There are also some photos contributed from Nick's camera
