Ecogenomics and Bioinformatics Lab (EBL)

The Ecogenomics and Bioinformatics Lab (EBL) is a collaborative space located on the ground floor of the R.N. Robertson Building (Bldg 46 ANU - you can find us on this map). The EBL is a joint initiative of ANU and CSIRO that seeks to support training, collaboration and cross-pollination. The lab includes experimental and computational components to underpin studies across both data generation and data analysis. For further information about the EBL, email, or contact the Lab manager, Niccy Aiken.
