Genome sequencing shown to curb disease outbreaks
This project will streamline the processing, management and exchange of genomic information in clinical settings and with researchers.
The genomic information management (GIM) workstream developed an architecture for Queensland genomic information management, and the standards, policies and procedures to support a common infrastructure for the management and use of genomic data.
The project team developed a prototype system to trial these standards for the capture and use of clinical and genomics data for clinical and research use.
To ensure Queensland is equipped to apply medical genomics to everyday healthcare, a number of capability building projects were funded in Round 1.
Project leaders engage with and draw upon the expertise of partners within universities, research institutes and hospital and health services around Queensland.
