Omecu is a spin out from the University of Edinburgh.  Our vision is to empower biomedical scientists and clinicians to analyse large and complex genetic and epidemiologic datasets interactively within seconds, not days, without requiring technical skills or access to individual-level data.  

Our Story

We are a small interdisciplinary team of physicists, mathematicians, biologists and computer scientists that aim to understand how genetic and environmental factors contribute to variation of human complex traits such as disease. Our expertise in statistics and machine learning, high performance computing and genetic epidemiology has allowed us to develop tools to deal with large genetic datasets and publish a number of influential papers using UK Biobank data.

Our original team has grown larger and with the help of the University of Edinburgh and its commercialisation eco-system we have added commercial skills to our team.
