Australian Bioinformatics Network

In conjunction with EMBL Australia and CSIRO, Bioplatforms Australia is building the Australian Bioinformatics Network (ABN). The ABN aims to foster world class bioinformatics capabilities for Australian researchers by supporting locally embedded practitioners and linking them with strategic bioinformatics sites at universities and research organisations across Australia.

Bioplatforms Australia supports three core centres for bioinformatics:

These research centres are complemented by embedded postings at various Bioplatforms Australia nodes across Australia. In addition, the ABN also draws in other relevant organisations such as the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) which creates infrastructure to collate and manage data collections.

These centres all contribute to the Australian Bioinformatics Network (ABN).
