9781107083349: Fred Sanger - Double Nobel Laureate: A Biography

Considered 'the father of genomics', Fred Sanger (1918–2013) paved the way for the modern revolution in our understanding of biology. His pioneering methods for sequencing proteins, RNA and, eventually, DNA earned him two Nobel Prizes. He remains one of only four scientists (and the only British scientist) ever to have achieved that distinction. In this, the first full biography of Fred Sanger to be published, Brownlee traces Sanger's life from his birth in rural Gloucestershire to his retirement in 1983 from the Medical Research Council's Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. Along the way, he highlights the remarkable extent of Sanger's scientific achievements and provides a real portrait of the modest man behind them. Including an extensive transcript of a rare interview of Sanger by the author, this biography also considers the wider legacy of Sanger's work, including his impact on the Human Genome Project and beyond.

Book Description:

'Fred Sanger's innovation and achievements enabled us to read the code of life. His breakthroughs transformed science, medicine, industry and society, and continue to open our eyes to a new knowledge and understanding of how life works … This book provides a rare opportunity to see a glimpse of a remarkable man who changed the world.' David Bentley, Vice-President and chief scientist, Illumina Inc.

'Every student of molecular biology would profit greatly by lingering over Sanger's own descriptions of the several strategies he attempted and the tools he had to invent to arrive at what is referred to today as Sanger DNA Sequencing … Sanger's success transformed molecular biology in inestimable ways and his methodology is equally foundational in such varied fields as evolutionary biology, plant breeding, paleontology, anthropology, linguistics, forensics and computer science … Fred Sanger was motivated by the challenge of discovery and believed fervently that through art and science, in their broadest senses, it is possible to make a lasting contribution towards the improvement and enrichment of human life.' Paul Berg, Stanford University, California

'As this wonderfully illuminating biography of Sanger reveals, his contributions were deceptively simple but profoundly far-reaching … Fred Sanger was truly an extraordinary individual whose influence in modern biological and biomedical sciences cannot be overstated.' Elizabeth Blackburn, University of California, San Francisco

'Fred Sanger was an extraordinary scientist as is evident from this informative biographical essay, celebrating his life and his contributions to science. To be awarded one Nobel Prize is very rare, to be awarded two, as was the case for Fred, has only been accomplished by four individuals in over one hundred years. His was a truly outstanding life … Fred is one of those few individuals of whom it can be said that they changed the world for ever. This essay gives a personal insight into his science and what he achieved. It allows all of us to be a little closer to this gentle, modest man of genius.' Sir Paul Nurse, President of the Royal Society, London

'Sanger, typical of many successful scientists, is reserved, even shy so we are fortunate that he offered to be interviewed. This book provides a wide-ranging account of his early life and his scientific career … The biography will provide inspiration and encouragement for aspiring inventors, for whom there is still a great need. Above all, it provides lessons for the funders: to find the next Sanger, they must be prepared to give long term support with strings loosely attached.' Sir Ed Southern, University of Oxford, from the Foreword

'If you type the word 'Sanger' into a search engine, you may find that the Sanger Institute, Hinxton, Cambridge - named after Fred - comes out on top. I think he wouldn't have minded that. He has a living memorial - better than a statue … Sanger taught us to read the information of life, so that we can begin to understand it.' Sir John Sulston, founding Director of the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Cambridge

'This intimate biography gives readers an unparalleled glimpse into the life of a scientist who transformed biomedical research. This work is filled with scientific details that will delight a biochemist, is accessible to lay readers, and will certainly inspire budding scientists and established academics alike.' ISCB Newsletter

'Revealing and fascinating.' Nature

Book Description:

Drawing, in part, on a rare interview by the author, this is the first full biography of Fred Sanger to be published. Brownlee highlights the remarkable extent of Sanger's scientific achievements, providing a real portrait of the man behind them and considering his continuing legacy as 'the father of genomics'.
