Australian Genomics building a ‘genomic learning community.’
The large national research network that is Australian Genomics has itself been the subject of a study.
Researchers from the Australian Institute of Health Innovation at Macquarie University studied Australian Genomics as an example of a complex adaptive system. Using a social network census to understand the social influences and interactions within the network, they found that Australian Genomics fostered collaboration by strategically building a “genomic learning community.”
“Hands-on learning” and “making group decisions” were the most significant factors influencing genomic practice.
