Genomes of Australian Plants (GAP): Building capacity and infrastructure across Australia's herbaria and botanic gardens

This national collaboration will bring together leading Australian scientists in the field of plant biodiversity to improve our understanding of Australia's unique plant tree of life using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). NGS sequencing and assembly of Australian plant genomes using Bioplatforms Australia will provide new tools for systematics and conservation.

The project will deploy funding to identify, sample and prepare appropriate specimens from living collections; assemble sequence data; engage computational biologists to train the plant diversity community in the use of NGS through capacity building workshops; and produce publications. This will deliver long lasting genomic infrastructure and step change in Australia's plant genomic capability.
