Our partnership with the microbial genomics team at VLSCI [now Melbourne Bioinformatics] is a key driver behind our program to bring the full power of genomics to Australian public and clinical microbiology laboratories. Genomics is revolutionising our ability to track disease outbreak and stop the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria. The Melbourne Bioinformatics team is critical to our efforts by providing accessible software tools and analysis platforms to interrogate the genome data in a framework that can then be deployed across Australia, and potentially across the globe for the benefit of all.
