PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

A synthetic biology approach to detect pathogen molecules in crops

Australian agriculture is a key contributor to the economy with the goal to grow the agricultural sector to AUD$100 billion within the next decade. Wheat is the major crop with a collective market value over AUD$6 billion. Fungal crop diseases are one of the major limitations causing yield losses of about 20% despite regular fungicide applications costing over $100 million a year.

This project is open to Bachelor, Honours, Masters and PhD students
