Bioinformatics Genomics

Bioinformatics Genomics is about finding the best treatment for a patient based on their unique genetic make-up.


Healthcare science staff in this field apply bioinformatics resources, such as databases and online tools, to problems in geneticsĀ andĀ genomics, using skills in programming and data analysis. They provide bioinformatics support to ensure data received and generated by the laboratory is used in an efficient, standardised, secure and accurate manner using leading edge technologies and adhering to information governance standards.

They will work as part of a multidisciplinary team that includes clinical scientists, doctors specialising in genetics, specialist nurses, genetic counsellors, IT teams and external providers of software or databases.
