We are pleased to announce the first request for partnership for the Australian Avian genomics initiative.

The Australian Avian Genomics Initiative aims to build a foundation of molecular data to advance our understanding and conservation of Australia’s unique bird species. This durable data resource generated by the initiative will include:

  • gap-filling reference genomes for Australian representatives of all bird families in Australia
  • increasing capacity for cutting-edge studies using phylogenomic, population genomic, and other ‘omic approaches.

This Request for Partnership is a non-competitive, collaborative, opportunity.
