The Victorian Genomics Collection

This collection is aimed at providing Victorian and Australian genomics researchers with a platform for accessing, sharing, analysing and publishing genomics research data and large reference datasets. It will integrate seamlessly with existing computational analysis platforms including the Australian Research Cloud and the Australian Genomics Virtual Laboratory. This allocation will provide reliable storage to enable the genomics community, including researchers and data providers, to share, publish, store and analyse genomic datasets of significance in Victoria and across Australia. The storage will leverage existing national infrastructure for genomics research – the Australian Genomics Virtual Laboratory (GVL) – to provide genomics researchers with a platform for accessing and sharing research data and large reference datasets, and will integrate seamlessly with computational analysis platforms built on the Australian Research Cloud. Intended research users of the storage will be a variety of research institutes and research groups throughout Victoria, most particularly at the Universities of Melbourne, Monash and LaTrobe and associated research precincts (in the first instance).
