Researchers have for the first time identified several genes in barley that could eventually lead to larger yielding crops.
Rice that is resistant to some of the worst crop-destroying diseases but can still produce large yields could soon become a reality for farmers worldwide.
Chia seeds are a popular superfood but consumers may not be getting the most benefit possible out of them.
Scientists have for the first time constructed the reference genome for the source of the popular fibre supplement, psyllium husk, which could boost supplies of the versatile plant-derived product.
It is a popular takeaway choice at fish and chip shops, but new research has revealed threatened species of shark are being sold as flake at some outlets across South Australia.
The University of Nottingham and the University of Adelaide have formally launched the Adelaide-Nottingham Alliance.
Fourteen grants totalling $7,269,318 have been awarded to University of Adelaide researchers from the Federal Government to continue their work in a range of important areas including health, wine and food production, pollution and nuclear physics.
A new research centre, led by the University of Adelaide, will focus international expertise on finding ways to provide the next generation of space explorers with nutritious foods, and the on-demand supply of materials and medicines.
A team of international researchers has discovered a way to produce higher quality wheat. The scientists from the University of Adelaide and the UK’s John Innes Centre have identified a genetic driver that improves yield traits in wheat, which unexpectedly can also lead to increasing protein content by up to 25 per cent.
Forget rocket science: figuring out how crews of space explorers will access fresh healthy food is the real challenge.
