Our Research 

Research at Doherty Applied Microbial Genomics focusses on the direct application of microbial genomics to all aspects of clinical and public health microbiology. The initiative has a number of key research priorities including disease diagnosis, microbial characterisation, outbreak detection and response, foodborne pathogen surveillance and antimicrobial resistance mapping. To facilitate this research we have established a network of partners comprising Australian advisory groups, hospitals, research facilities and genomics experts, who will work with us to perform research demonstrating the clear benefits of using microbial genomics within public health and clinical microbiology and that addresses important local and global questions within this scientific arena.

 Doherty Applied Microbial Genomics has established expertise and research capacity that make it uniquely positioned to become a leader in the field of applied microbial genomics within public health and clinical microbiology in Australia.
