The 2017 BABS Genome Competition
BABS researchers are involved in sequencing the genomes of a number of iconic Australian species. These include the koala, the cane toad, and Sandy the Dingo (winner of the PacBio World's Most Interesting Genome competition). Now, we're asking: what next?

This year, BABS has launched a new initiative: the BABS Genome Project. We will be using the latest sequencing technologies at the Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics to sequence a brand new genome of an Australian organism. Students and staff of BABS3291 Genes, Genomes and Evolution, will be the first scientists in the world to analyse the data.

Australia has some of the most interesting - and deadly! - animals on earth. If you could sequence one, which would it be?

If you are a BABS student*, give us the reason for your selection. Our five favourite answers will win a $50 gift card.
