The testers

The project team would like to thank the numerous teachers and their students who tested the prototype resources, in particular those who visited the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. Our colleagues there, Francesca Gale and Chris Stock, kindly helped to guide visitors through the prototype resources.


The DNA to Darwin project will be independently evaluated by Peter Finegold and his colleagues at Isinglass Consultancy Limited.
