Fish oils for good health
Healthy fish oils, also known as long chain omega-3 fatty acids, have earned the reputation as one of the best bioactives yet discovered.
Fast tracking oil genes
This two-page information sheet is about a new method for assembling gene groups to make better crops.
The Food Futures Flagship is pioneering biosensor technology which can be applied to food manufacturing, healthcare and Australia’s biosecurity and defence efforts.
The CYBERNOSE® technology
The CYBERNOSE® device mimics the sophisticated smell receptors of nematode worms to detect and measure odours and chemicals from a range of substances.
Olfactory pattern recognition research cluster
The Food Futures Flagship worked with the Australian National University, Monash University and the University of Queensland to create a new generation of electronic nose - a Cybernose.
About the CYBERNOSE® biosensor
Inspired by nature and a result of pioneering research, our biosensors mimic the sophisticated smell receptors of simple animals to detect and measure odours and chemicals in a range of substances.
Applications of CYBERNOSE® technology
The CYBERNOSE® biosensor technology can be adapted to and applied across a wide range of industries and uses, wherever rapid or ongoing information about a chemical environment is needed.
Improving cattle sperm sorting
Our researchers have studied the cell surface of bull sperm to generate information that may be used in novel reproductive technologies for dairy and beef cattle.
Breeding the horns out of cattle
A discovery by CSIRO scientists has been central to the development of an accurate DNA test that may help the Australian cattle industry end the painful practice of dehorning beef cattle.
Adding soluble fibre to staple grains
The development of grains with higher levels of β-glucan was one research achievement of the High Fibre Grains Collaboration Cluster, which formally closed in March this year.
