The Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in Structural and Functional Microbial Genomics is a unique, academic, basic research institute elucidating the key aspects of microbial pathogens and the hosts they infect. Applied aspects of the Centre’s research include the development of new veterinary vaccines and the identification of antimicrobial targets in the range of pathogens under study

The Centre is based at Monash University, Clayton, Victoria and works in partnership with the veterinary faculties of The University of Sydney and The University of Queensland, the CSIRO through its Division of Livestock Industries, the Victorian Bioinformatics Consortium (VBC), the Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing (VPAC), The State of Victoria through the Department of Primary Industries, the Australian Genome Research Facility (AGRF) and Pfizer Australia.

The Centre commenced operations in 2006 and evolved from the ARC Centre for Structural and Functional Microbial Genomics- an earlier ARC initiative. The Centre is also supported by the Victorian State Government through The Department of Innovation, Industry and Regional Development.

The ARC Centre of Excellence in Structural and Functional Microbial Genomics has brought together a team of leading Australian researchers in the fields of bacterial genomics, bioinformatics, microbial genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, proteomics, structural biology and vaccine immunology.
