Melbourne Genomics has commenced its final program of work.
By 2025, we aim to see genomics used more widely in clinical care, a workforce equipped to practise genomics, and a shared clinical system to support Victorian genomic health investigations.
Genomics in practice
Projects that will see more Victorian health services ready and able to offer genomics.
- Children with undiagnosed genetic conditions
