Round 1

Capability Building Workstreams

Genomic Testing Innovation

This project will develop quality management systems for genomic testing in Queensland. The systems will cover the process of sample collection, processing, analysis, tracking, and reporting to ensure Queensland clinicians and patients have access to high quality genomic testing that is timely, cost-effective and standardised.
