Oxford has been at the forefront of the new information age in biology, playing a leading role in the public analysis of both the human and mouse genomes and in the HapMap and Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium’s investigations into genetic variation in health and disease.

Increasingly, the rising tide of biological data challenges biologists to integrate and interpret  diverse sources of information in order to understand the role of genetic and epigenetic variation. From developmental disorders to degenerative disease, our confidence to embrace these new genomic technologies maintains our research at the cutting-edge of medical science.

Supervisors in this area are based in the Departmental of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine, the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, and the Department of Biochemistry. Institutes and Units include the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, and the MRC Functional Genomics and Molecular Haematology Units. Some supervisors not listed here are based in the Department of Statistics.
