ACE Director gets a Laureate

ACE director, Phil Hugenholtz, scores an ARC Laureate on his favourite topic, microbial evolution and classification. As a bonus, he was horribly misquoted in the Australian.

ACE Profiling Service for Bacterial, Archaeal, Fungal and Eukaryotic Communities Available

Community Profiling Services at ACE have recently been expanded from our initial 16S Amplicon service. We now offer a selection of 7 primer sets to cover Bacteria, Archaea, Fungi and microscopic Eukaryotic organisms. If you have a project that would benefit from these analyses, please email our Sequencing Manager, Nicola Angel to discuss your requirements at: (ace_sequencing@uq.edu.au).
