Bioinformatics in Sheffield is divided into two entities:


The Sheffield Bioinformatics Core (SBC) provides consulting and analysis support primarily for researchers at The University of Sheffield. Amongst the services they can provide include consultation on experimental design, processing of next-generation sequencing data and data integration. They also offer a programme of training courses.

Sheffield Bioinformatics Hub

The Sheffield Bioinformatics Hub is a cross-departmental collection of independent research groups who have been recruited to provide The University of Sheffield with a world-class computational biology capability. The Sheffield Bioinformatics Hub is jointly sponsored by the three University of Sheffield biology departments: Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (MBB)Animal and Plant Sciences (APS) and Biomedical Science (BMS); two Medical School research centres: Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN) and Sheffield Cancer Research Centre; and the NHS (Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust).
