@ace_uq permafrost work featured in Discovery@UQ

"Discovery at UQ 2014", the annual report that showcases many of UQ's outstanding research activities during the year, chose to feature ACE's work on the microbiology and associated methane emissions of thawing permafrost in northern Sweden: www.uq.edu.au/research/discovery on page 38.

ACE sequencing facility moves to Illumina platforms

Sequencing services at ACE have now moved to Illumina Platforms. 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.
