Without the capability to identify and study the vast majority of extant viruses using traditional laboratory techniques, emerging threats to Australian livestock health cannot be efficiently diagnosed or treated. New approaches based on high-throughput sequencing have recently been developed to study such viruses, but making sense of the sequence data is still a complex problem. Together with the project's Partner Organisations, including YourGene Biosciences Australia and the CSIRO Australian Animal Health Laboratory, this project aims to develop new computational methods to broaden the scope of detection and analysis of unknown viruses, enhancing the capability for research into the causative viral agents of animal diseases.
