We analyse sequence-based microbial communities with ecogenomics, an integrated, ecological framework using computational advances and new modelling approaches. 

With a portfolio that is 80 per cent applied research and 20 per cent fundamental research, we focus on pressing national and international challenges.

Australian Centre for Ecogenomics projects are as varied as:

  • understanding how microbes contribute to the Great Barrier Reef's health and ecological resilience
  • biorecovery for rare earth elements
  • characterising the evolution of multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli.
