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 Marta Milo (BMS), Roy Chaudhuri (MBB), Eran Elhaik (APS) and James Bradford (Oncology). Later this year we will be joined by Winston Hide (currently at Harvard School of Public Health, SITraN from August) and Ian Sudbery (currently at the University of Oxford, MBB from December).

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