News: Annual Report 2019
The harsh Australian environment and a changing climate require the combination of traits from both subspecies to secure national and global meat and milk production.
We assessed the effects of heat stress and predicted climate change on reproductive performance of Australian sheep.
We show that variation in cow and ewe fertility influences the reproductive efficiency of herds/flocks and the success of embryo collection and transfer programs.
A new stem cell type isolated by our scientists can be used to improve cloning efficiencies in cattle.
We're facilitating machine learning to assess the juiciness, tenderness, flavour and overall consumer satisfaction of meat.
Determining the patterns of expression and mechanisms of gene regulation at key fetal stages will provide us with information about normal development.
We show it's possible to disentangle the DNA sequences of the chromosomes inherited from the mother and the father, to create true diploid genomes from a single individual.
