GeneCology Research Centre
Research Centre for Integrated Genetics, Ecology and Physiology
GeneCology operates in the research areas of genetics, ecology and physiology, in both plant and animal systems and in the terrestrial and aquatic environments. These areas of research have created strong synergies among research interests of members of the research centre.
Research covers basic, strategic and applied research, with a strong emphasis on long term collaborations with industry and the use of cutting edge modern scientific approaches. GeneCology is actively engaged with major industries through ongoing partnerships in aquaculture, horticulture, ecological services, water quality and biodiscovery.
Research is delivering discoveries in pathogenesis and virulence of disease agents, propagation of rare and endangered plant species, conservation genetics, plant reproduction, and the application of advanced genetics and genomics to marine protein sources, cellular science and biodiscovery.
GeneCology provides a vibrant environment for Higher Degrees in Research.
