The CCAMBIO Project

CCAMBIO (Climate Change and Antarctic Microbial Biodiversity) is an academic project funded by the Belgian Federal Science Policy (BELSPO). Its main objective is to study the diversity, biogeographic zoning and genomic make-up of lacustrine microbial mat communities in the Antarctic Realm. CCAMBIO is composed by researchers from four Belgian Universities and Institutes (University of Liège, Ghent University, National Botanical Garden of Belgium and Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences), as well as collaborators from the British Antarctic Survey.
