The newly established Australian Genome Research Facility was awarded a $10-million grant in late 1995 from the Australian Major National Research Facilities Program. The center will concentrate on sequencing (John Mattick), mapping and linkage (Simon Foote), and mutation detection (Richard Cotton, author of the article on this page). Funding is for hardware only, and operating costs are expected to be generated from supporting organizations and other subscribers. Although several Australian groups have played major roles in genome projects worldwide, this program is the first effort to capitalize on opportunities offered by the discovery of genome sequences. More information can be found on its Web site (http://www.cmcb.uq.edu.au/agrf/).
