TO MARK Big Data Week (May 2-6) Curtin University’s Centre for Crop and Disease Management is revealing how their researchers are digging into large amounts of genomic data in order to produce disease-resistant crops to ensure global food security.

Researchers at the Centre for Crop and Disease Management are using big data approaches to study fungal genome evolution, which will one day lead to a better understanding of crop protection.

The CCDM, which is co-funded by Curtin University and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), has carried out research led by Dr James Hane.
