Cardiff University

Cardiff University is a core academic partner of the COG-UK consortium. The team collaborate with scientists at Public Health Wales to lead Wales’ contribution to the UK-wide genomic sequencing effort. The Cloud Infrastructure for Microbial Bioinformatics (CLIMB) project is based in Cardiff and Birmingham, which has proved pivotal to the consortium in providing computing infrastructure and bioinformatics analysis capability. The bioinformatics and sequencing staff in the School of Biosciences are also working as part of the PHW Pathogen Genomics effort to manage, sequence and analyse SARS-COV-2 samples collected in Wales.
