Sheffield Bioinformatics Hub

Welcome to the Sheffield Bioinformatics Hub. We are 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).

The current members of the Bioinformatics Hub are Dennis Wang (SITraN), Mark Dunning (Core), Marta Milo (BMS), Roy Chaudhuri (MBB), Eran Elhaik (APS), James Bradford (Oncology), Winston Hide (SITraN), Lucy Crooks (Sheffield Hallam University) and Ian Sudbery (MBB).

We are happy to collaborate or provide advice on how to handle biological datasets, particularly those derived from high-throughput sequencing.
