Alison Gill: Digging into life on a Fulbright Scholarship – My research and experience at the University of California, Berkeley
Alison Gill is sharing her excellent experience during her time in the US as a Fulbright Scholarship recipient. Fulbright Scholarship applications are open now, read all about what you can gain from exploring your research potential in the US.
Researchers have discovered a new gene in barley and wheat that controls the angle of root growth in soil, opening the door to new cereal varieties with deeper roots that are less susceptible to drought and nutrient stress, thus mitigating the effects of climate change.
Researchers from the University of Adelaide have crunched the data on the best methods to delay grapes ripening on the vine, leading to better quality wine.
Researchers at the University of Adelaide have developed a new canopy surveillance system with more advanced computer vision.
Read more of the latest research on planting cover crops directly underneath grapevines, to help mitigate the effects of climate change and improve land sustainability.
Researchers from the Biometry Hub have presented work on a new genome assembly software that can help produce longer and more accurate genomes than world leading competitor algorithms currently available. Read more about the publication on HaploMaker in open access journal GigaScience.
Wine scientist Natalia Caliani, Arboretum Officer Erica Boyle and Vet Sciences researchers Alexandra Whittaker and Rochelle Morton have won the inaugural UoA Science Communication Prize for their outreach and SciComm efforts.
Greener solvents were used to collect compounds, found in apple pomace, known for their powerful antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-diabetes and anti-inflammatory properties.
One of the many challenges for grape growers posed by climate change is the accelerated rate at which grapes ripen in warmer climates, which can result in poor colour and aroma development.
An international team of researchers has identified a novel mechanism in barley plants, which could help crop growers achieve high yields as temperatures rise.
