Queensland University of Technology to Establish DNA Biobank to Identify Missing Australian Soldiers

Families of targeted missing Australian service members will be invited to help establish a DNA Biobank to aid in identifying recovered remains, funded by a new $2.2 million Department of Defence Innovation Hub contract undertaken by QUT in collaboration with Defence.

Professor Lyn Griffiths, Lead Investigator from QUT’s Centre for Genomics and Personalised Health said the project would use next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology to generate DNA profiles of recovered remains and compare these to DNA profiles of samples from the Biobank of fallen soldiers’ living relatives.

NGS is a technology that allows human DNA to be rapidly sequenced and to detect variant sequences passed on through generations of related individuals.
