$3 Million Funding Investment for Canberra Collaboration to Protect Our Future Biodiversity and Biosecurity
After the devastating effects of Australia’s Black Summer, some species of our native plants and animals came close to extinction. Now, thanks to a ground-breaking collaboration between Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT), the University of Canberra (UC) and The Australian National University (ANU), an integrated big data platform powered by transformative genomics and populated with thousands of species of flora and fauna will be accessible to users the world over to track the impact of events like bushfires and assist with the management of our natural ecosystems.

At the core of DArTseq technology, as it was in the case of DArT method, is a genome complexity reduction concept. Many methods have been developed to reduce genome complexity for genomic characterisation, however the DArT methods provide a significant advantage via an intelligent selection of genome fraction corresponding predominantly to active genes.

Genetic identification and purity testing based on DNA represents an important part of modern Quality Assurance and testing for adulteration in agricultural production and food industry. DArT works with a number of clients on Intellectual Property (IP) issues including Plant Breeders Rights. Read more
DArT PL has technical capacity to provide DNA characterisation of any organism at any level of detail: from one molecular marker assay to obtaining full genome sequence of an organism. Our technology portfolio is being constantly reviewed and updated based on changing technological landscape (new methods of sequencing) and is quickly adapted to fit our users’ needs. Read more
