Who we are

We believe in improving the quality of life through exceptional life science.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and through a national network, we provide genomic services and expertise that are easily accessible throughout Australia.

We seek to empower Australia to be recognised for world-class genomics and innovation. By exchanging and collaborating in knowledge expertise, providing local access to innovative and state-of-the-art genomic technologies, we enable Australian academia and industry to advance leading edge genomic research internationally.

Vision and Mission

To be a key enabler of world class genomic science.


  • To provide Australia with a world-standard, research integrated, capability delivering genomic solutions to the biomedical, agriculture and environmental sectors to address key scientific questions for Australia.
  • To enhance our position as providing services to the entire academic community and render genomics accessible to suitable commercial and clinical enterprises.
