Marine genomes provide deep insights into the myriad ways life evolves in a changing environment. They provide a high-resolution means to understand how marine organisms contribute to ecosystems, and biofabricate unique chemicals and materials.

Genomic tools also are used to assess organism and ecosystem health, and are part of advanced technologies to mitigate environmental impacts.

UQ has a history in marine genomics that dates to the 1980s and includes the first marine genome project in the Southern Hemisphere. Today, we use genomic approaches in a wide range of applications.
