Biodiscovery and the Queensland Plant Pathology Herbarium

Shivas, R. G., Beasley, D. R., Bransgrove, K., Tan, Y. P. and Bulow, G. (2019) Biodiscovery and the Queensland Plant Pathology Herbarium. Microbiology Australia, 40 (3). pp. 134-137. ISSN 13244272 (ISSN)



The Queensland Plant Pathology Herbarium (BRIP) and its associated collection of fungal and bacterial cultures have obtained Australian and international recognition as critical resources for agricultural research and plant biosecurity. For decades, many key agricultural and mycological studies published in international journals have examined Australian reference specimens obtained from BRIP. The Queensland Plant Pathology Herbarium is now seeking to reposition itself as a significant provider of unique Australian cultures. This ambitious journey could unlock the potential of Australian specimens to provide novel bioactive natural products that may benefit society.
