The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Australia was formed to foster and enhance Australia's international competitiveness in the life sciences and strengthen Australia's emerging position as a leader in biotechnology research. The centrepiece of EMBL Australia will be the Partner Laboratory Network (PLN) of young research groups across Australia.
EMBL Australia provides Australian researchers access to EMBL through activities such as funded research positions, collaborative ventures and the formation of research institutes.
We have signed a memorandum of understanding with EMBL Australia to work together to establish programs of research collaboration in areas of mutual interest and benefit to the research community.
Our two organisations will work together to develop and promote recommended protocols for high throughput sequencing of the mouse genome. These recommendations will be distributed to the research community as advisory documents and updated regularly as technological change.
We have also agreed to work together to deliver our unique archive of mutant mouse pedigrees to EMBL Australia researchers and research teams in Europe and the UK.
