1. Fred Sanger - Double Nobel Laureate: A Biography
Hardcover (223 pages) by George G. Brownlee (Cambridge University Press)
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.

Fred Sanger - Double Nobel Laureate: A Biography

2. Frederick Sanger: Two-Time Nobel Laureate in Chemistry (SpringerBriefs in Molecular Science)
Kindle Edition (88 pages) by Joe S. Jeffers (Springer)
In this Brief, Joe Jeffers uncovers the life and works of two-time Nobel Laureate Frederick Sanger. Following Sanger’s early life to retirement, Jeffers describes how this celebrated British biochemist became the first person to determine the amino acid sequence of a protein for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1958. Highlighting Sanger’s remarkable career, Jeffers describes Sanger’s later change in research direction to investigate deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA), work for which Sanger also received the Nobel Prize jointly with Paul Berg and Walter Gilbert in 1980. Joe Jeffers conducted twelve interviews with Sanger over the period of 1999-2009 and he has also spoken to more than 40 of Sanger’s colleagues and family members. This brief provides a rigorous yet concise view of Sanger on a personal and scientific level and is suitable for biochemists, historians or the interested layperson.

4. Frederick Sanger - Autograph Manuscript Unsigned

FREDERICK SANGER This handwritten page, written by the two-time Nobel Laureate, offers a glimpse into how he sequenced the genome of a bacterium Unsigned autograph manuscript. 1 page, 8¼x 11¼, written in blue ink on lined paper. This undated document contains a partial description of Sanger's attempts to sequence the genome of a bacterium that he calls R17. A fascinating bit of scientific history, it includes a short description of how he used isotopes to label nucleotides. Sanger writes, "Subsequently almost all methods have employed isotopic labeling." Frederick Sanger (1918-2013) is an English biochemist and a two-time Nobel Laureate. His first Nobel,for chemistry in 1958, was for determining the sequence of amino acids in insulin, which also proved that proteins have definite strucutres. In 1977, he used a DNA sequencing method that he developed, the chain termination method, to sequence the complete genome of a bacterium. This was the first time that any genome had been completely sequenced and important in the development of the Human Genome Project. He earned his second Nobel Prize for Chemistry, shared with Walter Gilbert and Paul Berg of Columbia University. He gained his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1943 and retired in 1982. The Sanger Institute in Cambridge, England, an important center for genome research, is named after him. Lightly toned. Staple hole in upper left corner. Page has been folded three times; it comes with the bottom two inches, which are not written on, folded underneath the page. Otherwise, fine condition. - Please contact us if you have any questions or require additional information. HFSID 176175

6. Selected Papers of Frederick Sanger: (With Commentaries) (Series in 20th Century Biology)
Hardcover (662 pages) (Brand: World Scientific Pub Co Inc)
This important volume is mainly concerned with the development of methods for “sequencing” — that is, determination of the order of the amino acids in proteins and of nucleotides in RNA and DNA. In 1943 the position of only one amino acid in a protein (insulin) was known, and Sanger's first paper resulted in finding a second amino acid. In his final paper in 1982 he describes the determination of a DNA sequence of 48,502 nucleotides. The papers describe the steady improvements in techniques, and exciting biological results revealed by the sequences.
