About us

The Genomic Informatics group, led by Prof Sarah Ennis, is based in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Southampton. The group has developed from the Genetic Epidemiology group, founded by Prof Newton Morton and now led by Prof Andrew Collins. There continues to be close work between the groups. 

The group applies many informatic approaches to the challenges of genomics and medical genetics including next-generation sequencing and genome-wide association studies. Thanks to its placement in the Faculty of Medicine, the group has strong collaborative ties with local clinicians accross specialities, particularly Gastroenterology, Clinical Genetics, Oncology, Ophthalomology and Nephrology. All of our work benefits from the avaliability of local high performance computing facilities in the form of Iridis 4, as well as extensive collaboration with other research groups and industry.

In addition to the medical genetic work of the group, there is also a strong research interest in population genetics, particularly linkage disequilibrium based analyses of both human and other animal genomes. Many members of the group are also heavily involved in genomics education, particularly through the MSc Genomic Medicine offered by the faculty.
