Bioplatforms Australia and CSIRO’s Transformational Biology Platform jointly supported an initiative that facilitated collaboration between Bioplatforms Australia nodes and CSIRO scientists requiring ‘omics capability to enable their research.
A number of projects have been supported after a rigorous selection process focused on scientific merit and potential impact for the CSIRO research agenda. Collaborations supported are outlined in the table below. Many of these projects resulted in publications, presentations, new collaborations, spin-off projects and multiple new grant applications.
