Welcome to the Sheffield Bioinformatics Hub

The Sheffield Bioinformatics Hub is a new venture jointly sponsored by the Sheffield biology departments (MBB, APS and BMS), two Medical School research centres (SITraN and Sheffield Cancer Research Centre) and the NHS (Sheffield Children’s Hospital Trust).

We are creating new and vibrant working environment for Bioinformaticians and Computational Biologists to work closely with Sheffield molecular biologists.

The Bioinformatics Hub contains academic offices and large open plan workspace located within the Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (MBB), which adjoins our sister departments Biomedical Sciences (BMS) and Animal and Plant Sciences (APS).

The Bioinformatics Hub is a short walk from our Medical School and NHS Diagnostic services which house microarray platforms and high throughput sequencing resources. Equally nearby is a wide range of computer scientists and mathematical modellers already in post in the Faculties of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, Dentistry and Health.

Dr Marta Milo (BMS) is already resident in the Bioinformatics Hub and she will be joined by Dr Roy Chauduri (MBB) in December 2013, and in 2014 by Dr Eran Elhaik (APS), Dr Ian Sudbery (MBB), a SITraN appointee to be confirmed and two NHS appointees.
