The Microbiome Project

Capitalising on an archive of well over 10,000 soil DNA samples collected from cropping paddocks across the nation, over more than 20 years, and through glasshouse and field trials, this Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry-funded project seeks to identify fundamental changes in soil biological communities due to changes in farming systems over the past two decades.
