Project Description

Using normal skin microbes as a test bed, the project applies the industry partner’s advanced chemical measurement technologies with the academic team's expertise to develop methods to characterize microbes at levels of functional and taxonomic resolution not previously possible. In addition to research, the methods that are
developed will have a broad range of potential commercial applications including microbial characterisation for biosecurity, agriculture, environmental and soil biology .
