The Waterloo Centre for Microbial Research (WCMR) at the University of Waterloo combines interdisciplinary research and academic programs that explore and exploit microbial communities and their collective genomic potential within Earth’s myriad habitats.

Researchers in the network are drawn from all six faculties of the University of Waterloo, united by a common theme of microbes. The centre supports these researchers by fostering connections and finding new ones both within the University and beyond.
