Providing customised service for small molecule analysis for life science researchers.
Metabolomics Australia was established in 2007 as part of the Commonwealth government’s National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). This strategy aims to boost biomolecular research in Australia with a more strategic approach to infrastructure investment.
Together with Proteomics Australia, Genomics Australia and the Australian Bioinformatics Facility, we form Bioplatforms Australia and were established to develop high level expertise in ‘omics and informatics’ technologies. Each platform receives government funding and co-investment from their partners to acquire critical, high cost research infrastructure (intellectual and physical).
Metabolomics Australia specifically offers high through put metabolomics services to all life science researchers. Our services are jointly offered through a consortium of Australian universities and research institutes, each featuring world-class facilities and expertise in small molecule analysis.
Each of our four nodes offer synergistic technologies that can be employed individually or collaboratively to provide research services.
These four nodes include:
The hub of Metabolomics Australia is embedded in the heart of Melbourne University’s world-famous academic and biomedical research precinct, at the The University of Melbourne Bio21 Institute for Molecular Science and Biotechnology (www.bio21.unimelb.edu.au/metabolomics-australia), and School of BioScience (http://biosciences.unimelb.edu.au/research/facilities-equipment-and-resources) The node offers comprehensive metabolomic services covering detection, analysis and interpretation.
