Australian Genome Research Facility (AGRF)


AGRF is a not-for-profit organisation, committed to quality and innovation.  We actively seek to partner and share our knowledge and expertise in genomics. Through our national network, AGRF provides access to innovative and leading technologies, enabling genomics in the biomedical, agricultural and environmental sectors. From single gene analysis to whole genome sequencing (WGS), AGRF provides a full range of genomic capabilities and services with complementary bioinformatics across the entire biological spectrum, to academia, healthcare and commercial industries.
