Compendium of introduced marine pest molecular studies relevant to Australia

Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, 2023

This compendium provides a central repository that allows stakeholders to identify the range of molecular diagnostic tools that are available to support marine biosecurity research and surveillance in Australia.

Aim of this project was to:

  • To publish a list of molecular diagnostic tools (species-specific assays) of relevance to Australian marine biosecurity in a searchable spreadsheet with links to publications where available (accurate to June 2021).

Additionally, a list of Australian molecular diagnostic facilities that can undertake molecular diagnostic services for marine pest species, along with their experience, capabilities and operating framework, is available on request.

Please email to request a copy or if you have newly developed species-specific assays relevant to this list.
