About Us

The CLIMB project (Cloud Infrastructure for Microbial Bioinformatics) is a collaboration between Warwick, Birmingham, Cardiff, Swansea, Bath and Leicester Universities and The Quadram Institute Bioscience to develop and deploy a world leading cyber-infrastructure for microbial bioinformatics; providing free cloud-based compute, storage, and analysis tools for academic microbiologists in the UK.

The project is supported by three world class Medical Research Fellows, a comprehensive training program and two newly refurbished Bioinformatics facilities in both Warwick and Swansea.

CLIMB is funded by the UK’s Medical Research Council.
