Enhancing Australian biodiscovery molecule generation, storage and access (ARC LIEF administered by Griffith University) (2023–2024)

This infrastructure will enhance biodiscovery capacity of four QLD universities and benefit hundreds of researchers nationally across animal/human health, aquaculture, agriculture and food security. Sample processing robotics and storage (Griffith Uni) will enhance national biomolecule curation and access at Compounds Australia and an automated LC/MS will increase natural product extraction at Nature Bank. A robotic colony picker (Uni QLD) to generate microbial products will expand the Microbes Australia library. A protein purification/expression system (James Cook Uni) will facilitate microbial-derived biologic/vaccine discovery. Live cell imaging (Uni Sunshine Coast) will facilitate biodiscovery, aquaculture and conservation research.
