The DNA path runs from Great Shelford to Addenbrooke’s Hospital (or vv) . It is decorated with 10,257 colourful stripes which represent the four nucleotides of the BRCA2 gene. BRCA2 (Breast Cancer Type 2 susceptibility protein) was discovered at the Sanger Institute by Prof. Michael Stratton and Dr Richard Wooster in 1995. As it is, the path runs alongside a railway for two miles through the flat countryside of south Cambridgeshire and has become a popular commuter route since being opened by Nobel Prize winner Sir John Sulston.
