ACE SEQUENCING FACILITY MOVES TO ILLUMINA NGS PLATFORM

Sequencing services at ACE have now moved to Next Generation Sequencing using the Illumina Platform. Using MiSeq and NextSeq machines, ACE is able to provide increased depth of data, within a shorter time frame and at a reduced cost to the previous sequencing service. Routine 16S bacterial population profiling is running regularly at the centre.

Microbes enjoying the balmy summer on the permafrost

Global warming is causing vast areas of permafrost to thaw. Research by ACE just published in Nature Communications and discussed in UQ news reports a novel family of microbes that flourish as permafrost thaws.
