UM00020 - Strategies to ensure longevity of blackleg disease resistance genes in canola

This project investigated whether rotation of canola varieties derived from different blackleg resistance sources can increase the durability of blackleg resistance as well as reduce yield loss caused by blackleg.

GRS36 - Control of flowering time and subsequent seed formation by manipulation of AtMYB82

The aim of the project was to investigate the Arabidopsis gene AtMYB82 and its role in influencing flowering time and flower formation. This was achieved using a variety of molecular techniques to attempt to turn off and over-express AtMYB82, ascertain exactly when and where it is expressed and perform comparative analysis of wild-type and mutant plants.

CMB00013 - Australian Winter Cereals Molecular Marker Program - wheat genome sequencing consortium

Chromosome 3B of wheat is an early target for the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC). The pilot project for sequencing 50 bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) clones in a 12cM region with the Sr2, Stagonospora nodorum, leaf rust (Lr) and fusarium head blight (FHB) resistance loci has been successful in positioning Australia within the IWGSC.

DAW00078 - Continuing the Crop Updates Partnership

Agribusiness and Grower Crop Updates were developed by the Department of Agriculture and Food Western Australia (DAFWA) to deliver the latest cropping systems and grain production research and development (R&D) results to the West Australian (WA) grains industry.

UA00071 - Control and eradication of a parasitic weed, field trials.

This project was involved with control of branched broomrape (Orobanche ramose) in existing land use systems in the south western Murray Mallee of South Australia (SA). It was concerned with aspects of weed control using herbicides and understanding features of the weed's life cycle that may facilitate eradication of branched broomrape.
