Australian Research Council - Centres of Excellence

ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrated Coral Reef Studies

Indicative Funding
$28,000,000 over 7 years
Summary
The overarching aim of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrated Coral Reef Studies is to provide the scientific knowledge necessary for sustaining ecosystem goods and services of the world's coral reefs, which support the livelihoods and food security of millions of people in the tropics. The Centre will enhance Australia's global leadership in coral reef science through three ambitious research programs addressing the future of coral reefs and their ability to adapt to change. A key outcome of the research will be providing tangible benefits to all Australians by bui8lding bridges between the natural and social sciences, strengthening capacity, and informing and supporting transformative changes in coral reef governance and management.

Queensland Government - Accelerate Partnerships

Coral genomes along environmental gradients

Indicative Funding
$140,000 over 2 years (administered by University of Queensland)
Summary
The project will examine variation in the genomes of coral holobionts along two environmental gradients on the Great Barrier Reef, the first being dominated by sediments, nutrients and heavy metals, and the second by variation in surface water temperature. The aim is to identify markers appropriate for genetic connectivity, health status, stress and resilience in response to thermal or water quality parameters, and begin to integrate these data into management decisions.

Australian Research Council - Linkage - Infrastructure (L-IEF)

High-throughput DNA sequencing facility at James Cook University

Indicative Funding
$167,990
Summary
Many JCU projects underpinned by high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies require immediate direct local access for efficiency and quality assurance. Currently due to the tyranny of distance accessing high-throughput sequencing significantly increases turnaround time and can place valuable and unrecoverable samples to problems associated with reliable freighting and transport of material from infectious disease agents. Therefore it is essential that a high-throughput sequencing facility is established in northern Australia that can service the region and that allows rapid turnaround times, flexibility in services available including customisation, the ability to run pilot projects on small scales and alleviates biosecurity concerns.

Resilience of Coral Reef Ecosystems to Climate Change - Round 2

Indicative Funding
$835,200 over 4 years
Summary
The unifying theme of this proposal is the development of technologies and new knowledge for management and sustainable use of the world's coral reefs. The capacity of marine organisms and ecosystems to cope with accelerating climate change will depend on their potential for rapid acclimatisation, and ultimately adaptation, to changing climate. Research in Round 2 will use a unique combination of experiments, genomics and modeling to reveal the molecular and physiological mechanisms for acclimation and adaptation to climate change corals and reef fishes, leading to an enhanced capacity for predicting and managing changes to these critical natural assets.
