UQ Genome Innovation Hub

Genome Innovation Hub (GIH) is a University of Queensland initiative and is part of UQ Research Infrastructure. GIH aims to develop innovative approaches to advance technologies in structural and functional analysis of genomes. The innovation hub will act as a collaborative research centre, working with UQ clinicians and scientists to implement novel and promising methodologies in projects focussed on the key areas of health, agriculture and the environment. Once implemented by GIH, these innovations (methods, protocols, software, expertise, etc.) will be made available through UQ Research Infrastructure Services, other UQ service providers, or through research groups willing to collaborate and/or train research staff in the newly developed approaches.

GIH conducts yearly collaborations with UQ researchers through awarding a GIH External Project. For 2021 project application information and the selection criteria, please see the information below and the UQ Research Infrastructure webpage.
