Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics

The Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics (ACPFG) aims to develop technologies and resources for the production of new cereal varieties that allow sustainable farming to generate economic, social and environmental benefits to Australia.

ACPFG was established in December 2002 after it was granted $27 million from the Australian Research Council (ARC), the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and the South Australian Government.
