Life Sciences researchers increasingly rely on advanced computing and storage facilities to support their work. Whether this be storage to retain images from high resolution microscopy for later processing, or powerful CPU compute resources to complete bioinformatics analysis, well-resourced and managed systems are essential to support leading research. The rapidly expanding interest in Data Sciences and AI is also rendering more prevalent the need to support the application and development of novel methods for data analysis. This paper outlines the strategic facilities made available by the University of Birmingham to support Life Sciences research.
