Sustained productivity gains in softwood plantations through enablement of single-step genomic selection

This project forms part of a series that aims to at least double the rate of genetic gain in pine tree breeding in Australia. This project will focus on the extensive network of trials and orchards in the Gippsland region of Victoria to further implement cutting-edge single-step genomic selection, provide pedigree and identity assurance for the radiata pine breeding and deployment populations, and deliver new, high-throughput sample processing methods.

Resolving the biological stock structure of southern ocean crab fisheries

A good understanding of fish stocks is essential to ensure sustainable harvest and reduce risks of overfishing, but this information is lacking for Australian giant crab and giant spider crab fisheries. This project aims to identify key stocks of the crabs and their dispersal pathways across southern Australia, and provide a set of management recommendations that will promote more informed and sustainable fisheries.

Identifying new resistance genes for Panama Tropical Race 4

This project will identify new genetic material associated with resistance to the banana disease Panama Tropical Race 4, with the aim of developing a range of molecular markers. These will be used to screen germplasm in international breeding programs to identify lines and varieties that will ultimately be used by Australian banana growers.

Building faster and improved genetic evaluation tools and systems

This project will further amplify the cumulative and permanent genetic gains in the Australian red meat industry, investing in genetic evaluation of new traits such as methane output and novel measures of animal welfare and resilience, along with more specific measures of consumer acceptance and nutritional value traits.

Genetics of Fruit Sensory Preferences

This project is exploring how the sensory qualities of fruit, such as taste, smell, look and feel contribute to consumer preferences, purchasing and consumption of fruit, and feeding that information into breeding programs to improve fruit varieties for both the grower and the consumer.

Overcoming propagule supply bottlenecks for seaweed production

Asparagopsis taxiformis, a red seaweed, seems to be the most effective species of macroalgae to reduce methane production in Australian livestock. To support the Australian livestock sector to reduce its emissions footprint by adding it to animal feed, there is an urgent need and significant commercial incentive to rapidly develop next-generation ways to propagate, farm and process Asparagopsis taxiformis at scale. This project will develop micropropagation tools for seaweed farming. By using plant tissue in small amounts, micropropagation can produce large numbers of disease-free plants in a short period, using small spaces.

Sequencing Australian wine grapevine germplasm

This is the first phase of a project which aims to sequence and analyse all of the commercial grapevine germplasm in Australia. This will provide a complete dataset that encompasses the breadth of genetic diversity in grapevine that is available to Australian grapegrowers and winemakers and will provide the knowledge base required for cultivar and clone identification services.

SAWIDS Clonal mapping of Pinot Noir

This project will use DNA sequencing to develop a genetic database for commercially relevant Pinot Noir clones, to verify the clonal material held in Australian germplasm collections and source blocks (vines of known virus status and identity which are used as material for propagation). This will enable valuable commercial Pinot Noir vineyards lost in the Adelaide Hills bushfire of December 2019 to be replaced with verified, true-to-type clonal material.
