National Microbial Genomics Framework 2019–2022
We aim to provide documents in an accessible format. If you're having problems using a document with your accessibility tools, please contact us for help.
Microbial genomics is used to analyse the genome of pathogens. This information can help us understand how it infects humans and how it can evade antimicrobial treatment. We can use the information in public health situations to help manage current and emerging outbreaks and threats of communicable diseases in Australia.
The framework outlines 5 strategic priorities and identifies directions for change, opportunities for action and areas that need more work.
