The project will drive the integration of large DNA sequencing datasets that describe the composition and function of Australian marine microbial assemblages, with oceanographic datasets that describe the form and dynamics of Australian ocean ecosystems.
The integration of these very different data types will accelerate our understanding of how changing environmental conditions drive the microbial processes that sustain the planet, while enabling non-microbial researchers’ direct access to key microbial insights that will enhance modelling of ecological and biogeochemical processes.
Who is this project for?
- Research organisations
- Government agencies (state and commonwealth)
What does this project enable?
This project will enable data integration that does not currently exist anywhere else in the world and will provide great advantages to the Australian research community.
