Biomolecular Frontiers Research Centre
The Biomolecular Frontiers Research Centre brings together national and international researchers in the molecular and cellular analysis of living systems.
Our multidisciplinary framework:
- links leaders in genomics, proteomics, glycomics, bioinformatics and structural biology
- fosters advances in systems-wide biology
- brings diverse applications to the marketplace.
In 2012 Biomolecular Frontiers Research Centre again sponsored the undergraduate international Genetically Engineered Machines competition (iGEM). The initiative also obtained significant co-sponsorship . The team scored a silver medal at the regional finals in Hong Kong and was selected to be one of 17 teams to represent Asia in the World finals in Boston. TeamMacquarie2012
