The Amphibian and Reptile Genome Initiative aims to build a foundation of genomic data to advance our understanding and conservation of Australia’s unique reptiles and amphibians.
There are currently 225 plant genomes, of an estimated 403,000 genomes available. By unlocking genomic data we can significantly improve conservation management.
A catalyst program whereby cardiovascular researchers are partnering with the Bioplatforms network to develop and analyse ‘omics data in support of national collaborative research grants.
The Oz Mammals Genomics Framework Data Initiative aims to build genomic resources, collected from species around Australia as well as from historical specimens, to understand and protect Australia’s mammals.
Two fantastic opportunities are now available for partnerships on conservation projects for Australian fauna and flora species as part of the Australian Amphibian and Reptile genomics initiative and the Threatened Species initiative.
Professor Andy Lowe’s piece on how Australian research infrastructure supported global efforts during COVID-19 has been published on the Australian Academy of Science (AAS) website
The last year has been like no other, with Australia in particular facing a succession of challenges related to drought, bushfire and the global pandemic.
Using genetics to inform conservation of Australia's native plants
The Bioplatforms’ All Hands meeting of our node network has been postponed due to COVID-19. We will be in touch with our network when we can confirm a new date for the event.
In this webinar, we will see a demonstration of a genome assembly, using chloroplast sequencing data and the Galaxy Australia web platform.
Webinar: Introduction to containers. Webinar description coming soon…
This webinar will provide an overview of Genomics for Australian Plants including updates on current activities of this nationally-inclusive and collaborative initiative.
