Research Excellence and Environment

The MMB programme offers an exceptional research and training environment on the Norwich Research Park, where students benefit from access to world-class researchers in microbial genomics and bioinformatics, multi-million-pound investment in our computing and sequencing infrastructure (includes Oxford Nanopore PromethION technology) and our role as the leading research organisation in the £2m MRC CLIMB-BIG-DATA project, which underpins and synergises with the MMB’s research and training.

The MMB DTP has a distinctive partnership with frontline government agencies and the NHS that provides students with hands-on experience of the translational impact of microbial genomics, equipping them to work in government agencies and the healthcare sector, e.g. in health informatics.
