Abstract

Microbial genomics is a powerful laboratory tool to characterise human pathogens at the highest level, allowing greater understanding of the source and spread of pathogens that infect humans. In this project, through close links with the Victorian Government, we will determine how this exciting new technology can best be applied to prevent the spread of high risk human pathogens, and inform public health action.
