The Microbial Genomics Group contributes specialist expertise and leadership to national collaborative projects, develops platforms for more efficient research data storage, analysis and sharing, and develop a wide range of training activities. Co-located with the Microbial Diagnostic Unit of the Public Health Laboratory at the Doherty Institute, the Microbial Genomics team works with researchers and public health authorities around the world to implement a new ‘gold standard’ in public health outbreak investigations, using the refined analytical tools now available to microbiologists through next generation sequencing technologies. As well as developing our own novel tools to share with the bioinformatics community, we work to continually upgrade the the Australian-made GVL to make genomic data analysis more accessible to microbiologists in Australia and now our public health colleagues around the world.
