The Environmental Genomics programme has acquired and exploited sequence data for whole and partial genomes, helping us to understand environmental biology.
One important aim has been to demonstrate to the environmental community, in particular regulators and industry, how post-genomic technologies can be applied to tackle environmental issues.
The programme has established a nation-wide community of researchers, both empiricists and theoreticians, with the skills to develop and apply post-genome technologies to the study of how organisms and ecosystems function. More about the Environmental Genomics programme
