Environomics in practice
We are using bees to survey flowering plants and monitor changes to vegetation. You can read about this new technology called pollen DNA metabarcoding.
We are developing new ways to access the genomic information locked inside natural history collections. You can read about our fast, inexpensive way to process DNA sequences from millions of preserved specimens.
We’re using traces of DNA left behind in the environment to transform environmental monitoring and species detection. Read about our eDNA research.
Estimating lifespan is difficult for most wild species. Read about our method which can predict the lifespan of a species if we know the DNA sequence of its genome.
We are collecting venom from spider wasps and working with the University of Queensland to discover the hundreds of compounds it contains.
Our FSP researchers developed a DNA‑based method of fish ageing that is a harmless and cost-efficient alternative to examining otoliths.
