The Australian Centre for Ecogenomics was established in August 2010 at the University of Queensland in the School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences. It provides a focal point for sequence-based analysis of microbial communities and builds strength in this space not only in Queensland, but Australia as a whole. Our project portfolio is 80% applied research focused on major national research priorities (e.g. climate change, infectious diseases) and 20% fundamental research.
This project aims to construct the first Great Barrier Reef microbial genomics database which will provide a framework to ascertain the environmental relevance / ecosystem consequences of changes in microbial community structure and function following environmental perturbation.
