The applied bioinformatics group has extended research experience and interests from crop genomes to metagenomics. This research is supported by an ARC linkage project titled 'next-generation metagenomics', in collaboration with Biomatters Ltd (NZ).
Our aim is to develop strategic collaborations where we apply our experience in second generation genomics and bioinformatics, together with partner experience in specific biological environments to answer tightly defined biological questions.
Projects to date include analysis of the coral holobiont in response to climate change and assembly of methanogens from cattle rumen.
