The BABS Genome is a student-centred initiative of the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Science (BABS) to sequence and assemble a eukaryotic genome for use in teaching and outreach. Genomic data will be analysed as part of the educational experience for BABS3291: Genes, Genomes and Evolution. Sequencing will be performed with the latest technologies through the Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics at UNSW.
