Access to archive material

The Australian Microbiome Initiative provides publicly accessible sequencing data from a broad range of Australian natural environment and with rich contextual metadata associated to each sample. This can be found on the Bioplatforms Data portal for the initiative.

But did you know that material from many of the samples can also be accessed?

  • Terrestrial: soil material, extracted DNA
  • Marine – pelagic (NRS, research voyages): extracted DNA
  • Other samples: extracted DNA (variable availability)

The material available is limited, but if you have a specific research question in mind, please contact us through the Project Manager to discuss!
