Food Security Data Challenges Projects
Exploreabout Food Security Data Challenges Projects
Australian researchers and pest species managers are developing chemical, biological and genetic control strategies for native and invasive pest species. However, they often lack quality reference datasets such as genomes of relevance to Australia, associated population data and pipelines for downstream use and analysis of data assets.
AU Pest Genomes will deliver reference-quality data assets for Australian pests and invasive species to aid development and uptake of modern genome-based approaches to their management.
This project will:
Australians will benefit from reduced public health risks and the reduction in the impacts of these species.
AU Pest Genomes will also enable:
Our partners are:
This project will collate, simplify, upgrade and coordinate the data assets that underpin future pest research and management in Australia, making Australia a world leader in genome-based approaches to control.
