CLIMB Workshop – Genome Bioinformatics

13 April 2018

The MRC-funded Cloud Infrastructure for Microbial Bioinformatics (CLIMB) training workshop takes place this afternoon between 13:15-17:15. This hands on session looks at the analysis of microbial bioinformatics data using the CLIMB cloud-based computing system.

The CLIMB project is a collaboration between Warwick, Birmingham, Cardiff and Swansea Universities to create a world-leading cyber-infrastructure for microbial bioinformatics. The project plans to build a free cloud-based solution for the storage and analysis of data to be used as a tool for academic microbiologists in the UK.

The half-day workshop is split into four parts to help new users gain knowledge and experience to set up, manage and configure bespoke instances to analyse large microbiology data sets. There will also be a Q&A and feedback session at the end of the day.

The workshop has been organised by Alan McNally and Nicholas Loman from the University of Birmingham, and Andrew Millard from the University of Leicester, and will take place in Hall 8b. There will also be an exhibition and short refreshments break during the afternoon to allow for networking.
